Algebraic Equations

If you stop to ponder and wonder why,
I sit here pounding my head into my desk.

If you think to yourself: poor soul,
As I scream at the computer screen.

All I wanted, all I asked for,
All I paid for, was a degree.

I did not sign up for this,
Torture chamber,
Happiness sucker,
Straight-jacket fitter.

So simple and straightforward,
Or so the Doctor of the Math Fiends says.

Just look at it logically,
And the heavens will open up for ye.

I begged to be released,
All I paid for, was a degree.

I did not sign up for this,
Torture chamber,
Happiness sucker,
Straight-jacket fitter.

Algebraic Equations!
Be gone from ME!

About this poem:
10 weeks of soul-sucking torture that I 'willingly' signed up for.

Relax and create a sonnet
to remember the steps by
and it will become clear.
In lieu of that take a
break and try again with
a relaxed posture.dunno angel comfort

I like the "So simple and straightforward,
Or so the Doctor of the Math Fiends says."...easy to say what you know...

oh math - one of the few things in the universe that always remains logical!daydream it's a subject at which you can score 100% if you understand - and the best way to understand? is to go explain it to someone else! seriously, this works even if you try to explain it to a child things begin to click and add up in a way you didn't think of before. the person you explain it to will ask questions which you have to answer and eventually you understand idea yea, like a light coming on. cool wear shades - the light will be bright! laugh
good luck with it amahlala, you can do it!
