Natural Selection

In school they never teach you about

Homosapien natural selection.

Or about how in one lifetime

You better adapt or fall to

Survival of the fittest.

Evolution better bless you

With the correct phenotype

So you can advance.

Find a niche,

Because the one thing everyone hates

Is ecological variation.

Nice guys are endangered

Because compassion isn’t hereditary.

Smooth edges are common

Victims of sexual selection,

Which is why selective breeding results

In jaded offspring.

It’s a dog eat dog world,

Where, logically, the evolutionary trait

For survival is

Being a bitch.

If we lose sight of Eve’s thievery

How are we supposed to progress?

We arose from disobedience,

So bending the rules should come naturally, right?

To get to the top you have to teach yourself

To scrap the remnants of lesser beings

Off your shoes and onto the opposition.

Is it greed if you ask nicely?
