Zero-sum Zen

Attention is the currency
Of certain games we daily play.
The Power Laws are clear on this:
The takers grab, the givers pay.

The game, defined so narrowly,
Is finite, skewed, and zero-sum.
The winners, few, keep winning on,
The losers ‘wait their turns to come.

Attention can be win-win too:
A unit paid could cashback more.
A mindful minute’s twice the time.
The more is spent, the more’s in store.
