It all adds up

Sadie’s What do you See

The image to work with

Euclid
Pythagoras
A mystery to me
Some say
Geometry
I say angles
axioms
lines
planes
spacial relationships
(my bestie and me)
circles and rectangles
Pie (not Pi)
I need
a protractor?
but on my farm
I need
a tractor
But a set square?
I only have
Becky’s Squares
which do me fine
But do I need
to know
the shapes
the size
the dimensions
of things
around my house
I need to
know
what bird
that sings
not the
workings
of many things
From my schooling
Pythagoras
and Euclid
my mind has hid.

    1. Thanks Paula. I don’t mind basic geometry as I use it building and repairing things I guess but once it gets into rhombic dodecahedron is a convex polyhedron with 12 congruent rhombic faces … The last two correspond to the B2 and A2 Coxeter planes 😲πŸ€ͺπŸ˜‚

  1. Loved your poem and guess a lot of people can relate to that. I was quite good at school until algebra and geometry were introduced into the curriculum. Quite good with basic mathematics and very good with finance, but algebra? Cue for a song here – I Get Along Without You Very Well.

  2. Oh my I’m honoured to be mentioned in this fantastic poem. What a treat.

    I thought I liked algebra and statistics until I took it at A level (ATARs) and those studies soon cured me of that πŸ˜‚

    1. It just came naturally when the word square came to mind of course I always would think of you ❀ Statistic is still an attraction for me though but just basic stuff. When I had to do a bit of stats in my Uni course, that was a nightmare but at least there was a computer program as long as the input was correct πŸ˜²πŸ˜ƒ
