Amalia is keeping bar in the Dverse Lounge tonight. I am glad to be able to rest for a while at the bar and uncover a secret ingredient; one I believe is a recipe for happy living at this time of year:

You should solve for why, not x

As all of life on Earth directs.

For all great questions answer Why?

But, “Why”? For X is just variable

Which can often be quite terriable.

Cause the simple truth you can’t decry

Is that if you ain’t got it to flaunt

Then Mister X is just a taunt

When all you need to know is why,

You need the fancy digs and more

And pawn your future life before

You know the interest rate’s new high!

Aye Aye Aye

Never stop asking y! I love your poem!

Thanks Dwight. I never have quite enough money to solve for x, since it’s a quantity, lol

Ha! Now I know y!

This is so cute.

“Is that if you ain’t got it to flaunt

Then Mister X is just a taunt

When all you need to know is why”

But I’m an algebra girl, so I can handle solving for lots of letters at a time. 🙂

You’re better off then than I am.I could never solve math problems, lol

aha! the algebraic ingredients worked so well for me! cheers to whys!

Love it… and it took me right back to school… solve for x when you ask (wh)y

Thanks Bjorn, never was any good at math 😧

Yes, the function of x is always more rewarding than x itself. Thanks, Walter.

Yes maam, especially if you’ve already peeked and know what x equals

Never stop asking y….this is a clever use of math in poetry.

Thanks Grace. It’s easier than math to me

Nice line: “When all you need to know is why,”

Thanks Frank. Sadly, probably already know

If ya ain’t got it ya can’t flaunt it. Like the flipped meanings in this piece Walter… 🙂

Thanks Rob, it’s all gone noe, so money is no object, lol

Hahahahaha… Nice!

Ah Walter…..your writing always makes me smile. Truth be told, I hated algebra and solving for X and Y (why????). Much preferred geometry and looking at all the angles! 🙂

Thank you for the kind reply Lillian. I am sorry I lost track of the post. Christmas season was a little crazy. One thousand pardons!
