If numbers were people, with the same kinds of thought
Mathematical theory would all be for naught
Time honored axioms, tested and taught
Fall prey to the doubt that Suspicion has brought

Instead of existing in structured accord
They'd forever be jealous, angry, and bored
For petty complaints they could hardly afford
They'd abandon perfection, and lift up the sword

"I heard what you did", says the Two to the Three
"You multiplied Four... Is she better than me?"
"I come before her, in graph and degree"
"I'm twice her sum…. Tho' not numerically"

"So what if I did?", Three fires right back
Primes his exponents, begins his attack
"I see no difference 'tween this set of facts"
"And when you factored Five, and called it abstract"

Einstein and Euclid, would both be hard pressed
To write an equation, to solve this fine mess
In truth, total damage is hard to assess
When Trust is subtracted, it's anyone's guess

the great mathematician evolving to the third power...

A very calculated equation; it is of prime importance, if two is to stay together, that she discount thoughts of her favorite figure coupling other numbers, be they imaginary or real -- yet if she is correct in her summation, it would surely behoove her to remove her digits from his. Very clever, very funny, and very very good.

I think this is one of the most brilliant poems I have ever read! Write more like it, plee-eze!
