I am a triangle

I am a triangle,
strong base and powerful apogee -
stand on me...

Oh.
Now I’m a trapezium.
Never mind.

Ha, that was cute and funny. When I was in high school they used to call me a square... but I always wanted to be an octagon when I grew up. Oh well. : )

OK, I just had to look up 'apogee' just now - so thank you, I love learning new words (and that one's going into a poem soon!)

Ha - thanks Jeanne - funny you should say that. I did write it about an overconfident triangle but when I read it Vicki, I thought ha - this could be about so many things! So I posted it, pretending thsy’s what I meant all along!!

LOVE this off the wall wit. Reminds me of, "You matter unless you multiply yourself by the speed of light ... then you energy." I was highly entertained! Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Nina, a trapezium? no sides at all? Your write tells me you have enough of everything to stand on your own.

Thank you Lunita! A trapezium is arguably more sturdy so I should be ok. Just a bit less pointy :-)
