Figures



 

Figures

 

When you think in headlines 

And feel in math

You say the right thing at the right time

 

You never need a calculator to add up the world around you

 

Sharply rendering words of wisdom

Is habit

Easy as pressing buttons

 

But how? 

 

Up your clever quotient by five 

And you’ll be fine

 

Yet

 

The words do not add up on paper 

As in real life

 

Good decisions times nine 

Plus more for good luck

Equals happiness squared

 

Figures

 

A day late

A dollar short

Letters and numbers line by line

 

Flip the switch on and off 

 

The answers do not lie
