                    Some esoteric souls proclaim today
                    The Singularity is drawing nigh,
                    An intellectual event they say
                    That changes everything beneath the sky.

                    We humans then will have attained the power
                    To modify and to manipulate
                    The world, making old Mother Nature cower,
                    Becoming the architects of Earth’s own fate.

                    If this be so, it’s we whom we must change,
                    For as we are we’ve always been a threat,
                    Wayward and haphazard as we range,
                    Committing errors we afterward regret.

                         The single object that we must devise
                         Is how we’ll be when we have grown wise.
