The very foundations of society and civilization stand upon sticking round pegs into square holes. It’s not hard- all it takes is a little sanding of the circumference.
But not all materials are equally malleable, and even when successful this process wears us down to sharpened points. Sometimes it’s just not worth it. Sometimes we have to push our crooked towers over, let the pieces fall where they may, and start again another day.
