What is it that we must derive?
To know how we may live our lives
Can math show aught philosophy
Can we live by geometry?
If you travel in a straight line
First derivatives will suit you fine
Calculate rise over run
Just one point tells where you're from
But if you like to switch things round
Smell the roses, rock the town
Second derivatives alone will show
Whence you come from and where you go
If long ago you started straight,
Go back again, and integrate
If you wish to change your fate
Change vectors or accelerate!
dX/dY will calcify
One straight line until you die
If you would live in no ways same
Then you must change your rate of change
