the great will fall
in the fall of math
resonant shapes crumble
tangents and radius' melt 
multiply pain by infinity
and wallow in sadness

circles contain no answers
mathbooks burn alone at night
divide the earth in percentages
the fall of math
has come at last

we all evaporate into nothing
logic has abandoned humanity
if you cannot add things up
then you will be subtracted

scream into the darkness
scream with all your might
scream for the return of math

no-one answers but emptiness
nothing answers but pi

math has finally fallen. mourn

    Daniel, math has long been the bane of my academic existence. Thank God I'm long past examinations to prove my incompetence. You are so right that logic has abandoned humanity. I could always factor how to get from A to B with all the nuances in between in some convoluted non-traditional manner. Loss of the slide rule and use of hand held calculators are the instigators of the demise you speak of. LOv'd your work. JT
