my prisoner’s dilemma

by Michael Leong

you’ve done my maths
and i’ve done yours,
so put your exes into my whys and
back in again and let’s see where we go.
follow the pencil, dot the lines and
I’ll slide down your curves,
my regression, unintended equilibrium
decision tree yields mutually assured destruction
but we’ll rest where our tangents meet.
because was never a choice there was only
my Pareto efficient
dominant strategy
my utility monster
my
max(P-MC) = U.
