"There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends." - Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

The area of a worm is
rotten apple times moldy peach
divided by the
fork in the tree


the square root of a car in equilibrium
is 1 blown-out tire minus faulty brakes
Add the puddle in the driveway and you get

the circumference of the moon
on the night of the Homecoming Dance
Remember to measure the angles of light
refracting off a hundred dresses and a
sweaty nervous brows

But back to fundamentals
The volume of a summer’s day
A bird’s chirp times cherry pi
plus every blade of grass under the lawnmower

You didn’t get the meaning of life? Let me check…

Ah, you missed the rotten apple times moldy peach
divided by the
fork in the tree.
It’s a common mistake.
You’ll learn eventually.
