Experiment - A sonnet

The world is more uncertain - full of conflicting stuff
And the long-term plan is becoming a work of addiction
Puff, fluff and bluff
Cynics would say less a guide, and more a dereliction

So, what to do?
The only way to understand complexity
Is for the people in it, perhaps you (especially you)
To poke it, experimentally

Without controlling and without commanding
If we experiment, working with real faces in their places
We grow commitment, understanding
And convincing, living, breathing business cases

So don’t pretend the future - experiment - be bold
Otherwise we’re just going to get the same old…
