The minuend was unviable,
The subtrahend was me;
The difference is not insignificant,
The result, hard to see.
The sum of a few hot positives
Could not square with the trend:
The cold sum of the negatives
Added up to the end.
Mathematics of relationships,
Inequalities we wish will balance,
Fails when stretched past confidence,
But appreciated when given half a chance.


About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
