The Pen and the Calculator

“Could we be friends?”
The calculator asked the pen
“If you will just comprehend”
The calculator answered the pen.

Let’s relate to each other
And talk about this important matter
I’m interested in numbers
And you’re interested in letters.

How could we be friends
If we’re not on the same end?
Let us not criticize,
Don’t you know we both analyze?

We analyze a certain subject
We solve problems about objects
You add ideas, I add numbers
I subtract figures, you subtract letters.

I multiply variables, you multiply details
I divide quantities, you divide mails
But we both construct statements
Well, we can now have our friendly moments.


(Our Algebra professor required us to write a poem for the subject. Here’s mine.)
