During my elementary, high school and college educational quest,
I struggled to do my very best on every mathematical test.
I was a "B" student in English, History and Art as I recall,
But I never mastered the mysteries of mathematics at all!
Basic arithmetic such as division and multiplication left me at sea.
Even simple addition and subtraction overwhelmed me to a degree!
Trying to conquer the times-table gave me a shocking jolt!
Alas, teachers considered me a hopeless mathematical dolt!
Geometry baffled me as to which were acute and obtuse angles,
And even more perplexing were isosceles and scalene triangles!
Beyond me were the formulas for figuring the areas of hexagons,
Trapezoids, pyramids, circles, cubes and five-sided pentagons!
Teachers told me that for my future, algebra was indispensable.
Maybe so, but variables and coefficients were incomprehensible!
My limited intellect couldn't comprehend quotients and binomials,
Nor integrers, exponents, irrational numbers and trinomials!
Needless to say, I didn't attempt calculus or trigonometry!
Those disciplines were as foreign to me as parabolic geometry!
I'm eternally grateful to that selfless, ingenioius creator,
Who eased my plight by inventing the handy calculator!

The Mathematics of Love
The Mathematics of love are quiet simple really
Though we may think
Some algorithmic logistic
Imparts some spiritualist medium of the heart
Perhaps some benign logic
Of arithmetic fractions
Doodle numbered connections
Of lets say
And Marilyn Monroe’s blonde of
Or so we think
Earn their decimal places
And then again fates quasi Phi
Of destinies numerology
Can’t explain why
A circles circumference
Never quite meets
Predictions in logarithms
Tables of calculated emotions
Are tapped and squared rooted
To the power of x2
And by the beauty of numbers
And the power of their equations
Set in motion the moment of turbulence
Which equals chaos
Fractal forms of
How a beating heart
To its soul
But the mathematics of love
Is very precise
In the convoluted calculus
Of Roman numerals
And throw the complexity
And throw the complexity
