There is a war worth fighting for,
That against simplicity.
And stop pretending that you,
As everyone else,
Are not trying to reduce complex causes
To a manageable set of parameters,
Or intricate effects
To a low dimension gauge.
It worked well so far, didn’t it ?
This evolutionary trait,
Handpicked by the passing of Time.
And we know in our heart,
We’re not simple beings ourselves,
And so aren’t others.
Let us stop trying
To explain away the game
By the color of the pieces.
Because I can hear something
Worse coming, where fighting friends
Will be tough as nail and a
Different breed of men.
