Geometry 00

It’s something they teach
In all of our schools,
Basic geometry,
Shapes and their rules,
But something they miss
To pythagorate
Is how they all share
The same basic trait;
Circles and triangles,
Hexagons too,
May have varying sides
And theorems, it’s true,
But cut anywhere
Along any shape,
Spread them all out
And there’s no escape –
That though they may seem
So different to start,
They’re really all lines
When taken apart.

  1. Immensely clever! Love your writing πŸ™‚

    1. I was ready for more comments along the lines of, “Well, duh!” so I am pleasantly surprised no one is throwing any rocks at me (except the little pebble from Brian). I am very happy you like my writing! πŸ™‚

      1. hahaha, yeah I can understand why you would think some people may comment, “duh!!”. But for me, it was very insightful. Sometimes stating the ‘obvious’ is intelligent.

        1. True…things can be so obviously obvious it makes us oblivious. πŸ™‚

          1. LOL! yep totally! πŸ™‚

  2. Ah, but how many sides does a circle have? Most people think it’s one, but they’ve misunderstood the question. The question infers from its use of the word ‘side’, how many straight sides does a circle have, and the answer is, of course, infinitely more complex.

    1. Then you, sir, must be a circle at heart.

      1. Infinitely going round without ending…sounds like me, I must admit. Either a circle or a headless chicken…not quite sure which.

        1. Go with the headless chicken…you could use an apple instead.

  3. Now if you had personalized this, it would have made a nice counter-point to “Punctuation”.

    1. It would make for an interesting collection of work…punctuation, geometry, and other stuff that looks boring…

    1. Lotsa love right back at you! πŸ™‚

  4. great writing πŸ™‚

    1. You should have seen some of the ideas I entertained…for example, I wanted to use “manscape” as the initial rhyme to the word “shape”, but after looking up the definition of manscape, it seemed slightly inappropriate. πŸ˜€

  5. yea i think it would have seemed a little strange πŸ˜› I love your writing πŸ™‚
