The numbers swirl like cyclones
Across the God-forsaken board
I don't "get" anything written
My life is but endured

And people jump up, hand raised,
Knowing it all by heart
How I wish I knew
Just one geometric part.

But yet, I sit in silence.
While variables and things
Swirl and multiply and add
The nothingness is killing.

So kids doodle in their pages
And I squirm in my seat
Understanding Algebra
Is no easy feat.

y=mx+b.
Do you comprehend?
I'd rather be eaten by a crocodile
At every corner bend.

The teacher's speaking gibberish
The students all don't know.
The numbers are in, what, Japanese?
Do I like math?! NO!

I don't think I know anybody that loves both math and english, I think it's kinda one or the other. I think that you can be good at both, but that doesn't mean you like both. My dad and bro like math and my mother and I like english.
