A little poem

For my son’s math class.

Mostly written by me.

Clever?

Jejune?

You be the judge.

 

— Roger W. Smith

 

 

*************************

 

Don’t be lazy.
Don’t be lazy.
Multiply and divide,
Don’t be cra-ZY.

Mathematics is the key.
Without it,
Everything’s a myster-Y.

You will never know,
Will never be recognized
As an authority,
If you can’t add, subtract, and multipl-Y.

As a leader.
Doctor,
Nurse,
Teacher,
Mind read-ER.

Algebra and geometry won’t ever leave you depressed.
Don’t fear your teacher,
By your knowledge she’ll surely be impress-ED.

Mathematics is all logic.
Calculation,
Combination,
In your brain a nice vibrat-ION.

Rational and logical,
Very mathematic-AL!

Math and I are FRIENDS,
Here my little song happ’ly ENDS!
