Silent Strategies & the Echoes of Execution

the Kelly criterion was his formula of choice for sizing bets
when dealing with the collective illusion of current versus future value
and so he approached his goals and endeavours with purpose backed by labour
to avoid being like the futurist who knew too little of the past he purported to be projecting

took the gold and the silver
all the gems and all the pearls
and in return gave them paper
some dollars and yen
sterling and yuan
but that made no difference
for it was all the same

same scheme
same game
zero-sum
since way back when Kublai Khan reigned
which meant that the battle had already been won
