Landay for NaPoWriMo Day 19

Today's prompt on the NaPoWriMo website was to write a landay (a 22-syllable couplet [9 + 13] that generally rhymes). The prompt on their FB page was to write a poem starting with the last sentence of one's poem from the previous day. So, I combined both. (The last sentence of my poem from yesterday was "We choose.")

We choose even though we like to say
we had no choice. It's about the least resistant way.

See, one of my biggest pet peeves is when people justify an action by saying "I had no choice." There is always a choice: Yes or no, left or right, up or down, in or out, etc etc. I think saying "I had no choice" is simply a cop-out for not wanting to accept the responsibility for a difficult decision.
