Season Haikus

By Cera Knapp

Fall

Leaves turning colors
Dropping with each gust of wind
Fall days come quickly

Winter

It is very cold
Snow flakes falling on the ground
Rolling in the snow

Spring

Flowers blooming bright
Many bees come for pollen
Sun is shining down

Summer

The sun is so hot
The sun is shining so bright
Hot, bright, hot, bright, hot

Pi

By Damien Knight

Wanna watch my brain fry
I just learned pi
22/7 or 3.14 oh joy!
Then there are variables, boy oh boy!
A^2+B^2=C^2 Pythagorean Theorem
I just don’t wanna hear ‘em
Properties of equality?
Don’t ask me.
The numbers are all a blur
Can’t say, I’m not sure.
What’s X+Y? I think it’s Z.
Some Z’s is what I need.
She’s got numbers and variables
On the board, it’s unbearable
I can’t take algebra anymore.
It makes my eyes sore.
No ma’am I wasn’t sleepin’
I was just thinkin’.
What? This is geometry?
Oh well, it drives me crazy.
Now multiply, 9 times 9 is 81.
Of course ma’am I am not dumb.
Well, she says I am not on task.
Hey kid, what question did she ask?
