I don't think he's talking about inevitability, but the different natures
of life's struggles and that they are intertwined together.

No one has commented on this poem yet so I thought I would. I found a copy
of Spoon River Anthology in my school library by accident. And this page
was marked.

I think all Ross is saying is that if you were to look at your environment,
city or country, every event causes another event or leads to another event
naturally even though the corresponding event might not have anything to do
with it. I start a business and it becomes quite lucrative. It's only
natural that one day, someone move in to run me out or buy my property.
Sure I can fight it off but It all ends somewhere. And it might not always
be out of competition. But your neighbor also has to get his, and your
brother on the left always has to get his. "I ovecame my lower nature only
to be destroyed by my brother's ambition."

Monzales from United States
