Rebeca…
of what good is pythagoras?
and of what use is BODMAS?
and who need ALGEBRA?
needless is Trignometrics…
so why fiddle with mathematics…

As for pythagoras…
I do not like nor support
that the crusifixion together
of the square of
adjascent and opposite makes the square of hypotenus.

And Rebeca…
as for BODMAS…
it brings me pain
to see the Addition sign…
for the cross of christ
it does remind me.
And the Bracket sign…
reminds me of grandma’s casket.
she was to me a dear…
and to be reminded of her death…
such pain… is the same… of christ on the cross.

For Algebra—
a worthless bra—
oh Rebeca—
I do not like how the equations involved—
although- quadratic equation is a dear.
But I very much dislike how much pages it wastes…
for pages are more dear to me—
and should be sacrificed for poems…
And beautiful lines… like that of Peter Benjamin Peter…
who complains of his barren jaws…
from which he wish the germination of hair and moustache.

As for Trignometrics…
the calculating of degrees…
although- cosine and sine rule are true-
And it’s true that sine divided by cosine makes Tan.
And Sine is the inverse of Cosec,
Cosine the inverse of Sec…
all these are true.
But I do not believe
that degrees are within a circle…
for this earth is of a different shape to me.
At times, the earth is rod-like,
when life beat me with its rod and hurt me with spikes.
At times it’s of the shape of love,
when, Rebeca, you show me love.

Mathematics… Rebeca…
It is like you…
your laws hurt me…
and I love to be free…
but love you still.

Rebeca… you are a fiction…
mathematics is fiction…
poetry is diction… my nation.
