Isosceles
By Patrick A Granfors

Just for fun I calculated my astrological birth numbers. As it turns out, I have a double digit master number of 11 (intuition) which is influenced by my birth number of 2 (peacemaker). This could explain why I rarely quarrel even when I should, mainly because my rationality often deserts my cognition. Which is not necessarily to say that Im irrational.

What on earth

Would Pythagoras have done

If he’d had the birth number two

Instead of number one

 

Would he shun his astronomy

His mathematics and more

Would we have his perfect triangle

Of two, three and four

 

Would our music be different

Or exactly the same

The theorem he’s named for

Would someone else claim

 

I think life is a triangle

With two legs and a base

The isosceles variety

As I make my case

 

If base angles reflect

Your life’s points of view

Then wider is better

But less stable too

 

Larger angles they make

The vertexes taller

But the size of the base

Becomes decidedly smaller

 

Small angles diminish

The height of their peaks

But the narrow points of view

Grows a strong base that speaks

 

There’s safety in numbers

In shallow points of views

But our lives are determined

By the angles we choose
