 Darn blast this little box
 This web without a hold
 This absolute of right and wrong
 Machine without a soul
 This money driven rhino
 Charging GDP alone
 Just a target just a figure
 That's too stupid to be known
 Where this system is a problem
 It's solution though to most
 Where systemic is defeated by this systematic host
 We're the cogs that go on turning
 And as cogs we have our place
 Hierarchical positioning us top middle or base
 Like the intricate connections
 That allow our maths to sum
 It's our ultimate connection with the world to which we're dumb
 There's a known well thought of phrasing that is: think outside the box
 System x may be precision but should we take as orthodox?
 Here I question it's position as we hang upon a thread
 If we opt to be systemic we can spin it to a web
 Like consumption means destruction in its origins at least
 Exponential has potential to evolve in to a beast
 To prevent a near disaster we must shift a paradigm
 On reflection see connection to all things in space and time
 See our cogs replaced by cycles and our economic growth
 Put in context and perspective to enhance and cater both
 For systemic-systematic system x and system y
 And in blending set to mending us a web to catch a fly
