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.

90. Triangle [100 poems challenge]

 

90.          Triangle

There is, in every orchestra,
Kept with the xylophone,
A three-ways folded metal rod
That plays a single tone.
Its primitive simplicity
Musicians might resent,
But does its artful symmetry
Make maths folk feel content?
Well, though they recognise its sound
And find it rather quaint,
Geometry’s definition says
A triangle it ain’t.

Comments: I had the idea for a few days but I struggled to get it into the right form. It’s still less than ideal, but it’ll do for now.

Themes to come: 91. Drowning; 92. All That I Have; 93. Give Up; 94. Last Hope; 95. Advertisement
