For Better or Worse?

For Better or Worse?

we evolve
for better or worse
we become smarter
and stronger
by slowing our deaths
and suicides
with things
like cigarettes

yet
we devolve too
by submitting
to being too weak
to see a character
in a film
smoking a cigarette
without a warning
at the beginning

just when it seems
we make progress
we digress
becoming infantile
and stupid
in some other
pathetically weak
backsliding
way
