Your quest is simple
Slay the monsters
You slice through the first-
fractions, puhlease.
To the Forest of Variables-
pssh! Cowardly excuses for monsters.
The Cliffs of Negative-
Ha! What a joke!
The quest is simple-easy.
Until
Until the Mother Monster,
the queen of all beasts.
A Geometry Proof.

You grasp your sword with trembling hands,
approach with caution and care.
But all your efforts are for naught,
For the Proof rises up and strikes!

Death by Geometry.
How embarrassing.

THis is great! It's almost humorous reading it, and I think that's the charm to it. I love the beginning, too.

Exactly how I felt when I had to do geometry proofs last year! *shudder*  Anyway, I absolutely loved this poem, the comparison of geometry to a monster and the voice you added to the poem.  Great job and keep writing! :)

I just remembered proofs...up until now I had repressed the horrible memories.... This was such a cute, perfect poem! Especially "Until...until."

Thank you so much Maya! That really means a lot to me. The funny thing is I love to do proofs, but sometimes they are just so hard. Especially compared with fractions and algebra.

Haha... today in math I had to write a proof: "show that the area of an iscoceles triangle with two sides of the constant length 's' is A=(1/2)s(^2)sin(angle). My answer was "abandon ship"
