“Find the nearest book (of any kind). Turn to page 8. Use the first ten full words on the page in a poem. You may use them in any order, anywhere in the poem.”
Okay, nearest book…
OH GOD CALCULUS
“Zeno was arguing that it doesn’t make sense to add…”
As much as I did try,
And try my hardest I did,
It seems that my logic
Doesn’t get through to this kid.
So dense was his brain
And arguing didn’t help.
Why on Earth would we make
A birthday cake out of kelp?
Common sense would clearly show
That sugar and flour were right to add,
But Zeno was set on this recipe,
And I just didn’t want him to be sad.
