The Fear of All Sums
I don’t want to listen to what they say
Why must 1 and 1 make 2 that way
Save it for some other day
I need a 1/5
1 and 2 make 3? But what of Fibonacci?
All his counting’s kind of…splotchy
I feel my feet over a hibachi
Is anyone out there with?
Pythagoras and his ratio of gold
You all believe all the math you’re told
Maybe that’s why we grow old
And it’s all a myth
Abstract, real, imaginary
Kill me like a miner’s canary
Haven’t you realized arithmetic’s scary?
Chew that bitter pith
Keep away you polymath
I will knock you from my path
And then find out who hath
The number of a gunsmith
