Number Line

waisted moments on angles
Ever hoping to fade soft
Away like a void number
on the line of love

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?
