The Doctrine of Metaphors

Everything is a lot like everything else
But while being a lot like everything else
It's also a lot more like itself
    than anything else is.

But still - it's a lot like everything else.
And it's not so much like anything else in particular
As it is like everything else put together
But of course put together a little bit differently
    than it is in anything else
Or as in some cases a lot differently.
