A Note To My Algebra Teacher

A Note To My Algebra Teacher

By Elton Camp

I well recall what you used to say
That we’d use algebra every day

Without it, life wouldn’t be complete
For, with algebra, it would be replete

But factoring equations has yet to arise
And no quadractics, what a big surprise

Slope I haven’t yet needed to calculate
Methinks you did, somehow, misstate

To determine the value of X and Y
There hasn’t yet been reason to try

I find binomial multiplication is of no worth
To ninety-nine point nine percent on earth

A lot more honesty you should have tried
For about the value of algebra, you lied!

I think I know where you are most likely to be
May it have asbestos computers so you can see

    I even doubted it when I was a teenager in school.
