COUNTERACTING SPENCERIAN ‘SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST’*


(See sidebar for Translator, Music, Novels, Awards etc.)

The latest Monday Haiku, hosted (again!) by the skilled Serendipity, has a theme of: 

Survival

  Hand-reared weaver chick

Fittest still survive?
The weak, from chill, humans will
Save – and keep alive!

Hand-reared weaver chick 2

 

A REMINDER:

Last calls for entries to the Caption Competition …

 

*Darwin is wrongly credited with this phrase.  Herbert Spencer originated it.

    Good thought for the challenge.

    We increase the survival odds for some . . . while pushing others to the brink of extinction (or beyond).
