Told by an Idiot

Evolution was never
A game, except in
The evolution of games,

But evolution always
Was a lottery.
Not a fair lottery, no,
But lottery nonetheless,

Iterative lotteries.
Almost everything loses.
The few winners play again,
And almost all of them lose.

The next winners play again.
Bet on any one being
Or lineage, you’re a fool.

Extinction is the house rule.
Yet so many beings win,
The world grows luxuriant
With each next set of losers.
