    Can you believe she gave us
    every other even number
    two to sixty-six?
    That's seventeen stinking
    problems. Working
    at a rate of approximately six minutes
    per exercise, that's one hundred two
    minutes, which, when rounded
    to the nearest quarter hour
    comes to roughly one and three
    quarters of an hour of
    my life
    wasted
    on
    math.

      I feel a little like an alien. My favorite classes of all time….Calculus 1,2,and 3 with physics 1, and 2 running a close second. The classes I hated….history…. studying the failures of our ancestors, world religions…. crap what a joke, religion, bah humbug!!! As for sociology and psychology I could have done without them also. Maybe I'm just not a people person.

      my dad taught math in carolina at a community college...he expected 2 hours of homework a night...think of that time "wasted."

    got a smile from this one.

      And if like my bunch he'll wait until the last hour of the weekend to start. How true it is.

      i was searching my brain for it. irony.

    i can't believe the genuine sweetness and the sort of bare 'knowing' that seems to be in everything you write.

    loathe to list all of your sources; i might map out my journey prematurely.

      Hey, the kid has it figured out...so how is he in science and English? Very amusing little piece of fluff, I enjoyed it.

      oh my, this was highly entertaining. the irony, indeed, is there. oodles of them. the fact that he is going on about math and how much he is wasting on it seems to be beyond him as of the moment. knee-slapping goodness! i dont think this needs any nitpicking details. as to whether or not your piece's formulae actually pans out, it truly doesnt matter. as for the emotion, it rings true of a boy genius, in every sense of the word (a little cheesy suggestion, as the title is might be a bit misleading, "boy-genius").

    a boy troubled by math, when all he wants to do is just to be exactly what he is, and a genius at being able to quantify how much his life is wasted on math! hilarity!. this reminds me so much of calvin (of calvin and hobbes. heard of that little guy?) and am envious of the writing. hence, faved...


    peace.

      This sounds like a good portion of my peers.

    "WHAT! 12-40 evens? WOAH! no fair!"


    when in reality, those of us who bothered to count know that that is less than 15 problems.

    I like the irony in this. All the mathematical calculation to find out how long it will take to finish math homework. Nice.

    I'm not a huge fan of the title, but the poem itself is much more important, so whatever.

    My only other comment is that, while this was well-written, I'm not sure if I actually feel the emotion in it. I think you might be better off replacing a few periods with exclamation points or something.

    But it's also just fine as is.

    Kudos. Keep writing
