Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

85. Spiral [100 poems challenge]

 

85.          Spiral

When life is spiralling out of control
It takes a special kind of madness
To stop and ponder whether the phrase
“Running around in ever diminishing circles”
Is mathematically and geometrically
Correct.

Comments: And then write a poem about it. And then search the dictionary to confirm that this is more an “aphorism” than a poem (which is also true of quite a few of the other items in this collection).

Themes to come: 86. Seeing Red; 87. Food; 88. Pain; 89. Through the Fire; 90. Triangle

Explanation about the 100 poems challenge here.
