Sorry Math, I dislike you

Spending more time on my Facebook

Watching videos and memes of pure comedy

Sorry, I am unable to focus on this textbook

I want nothing to do with geometry

I go to tik-tok and YouTube to comprehend

Okay, I think I am getting the hang of it

Ugh, never-mind, I cannot pretend

Dark clouds over me, many struggles, I admit

Seriously, I want nothing to do with equations

I have no choice, it is a requirement

Having to come is without a doubt a frustration

I cannot create an excitement

But it’s not that boring

It’s just all about repeating

    May I suggest congregating in the village square and burning all the math textbooks for some arson-adjacent fun?

    I didn't have Facebook or TikTok to distract me from math when I was young 🥹

    I have read your poem multiple times...and I completely agree with your central theme. I hated math, and I hated the ones who told me I would like it if I just concentrated on it even more than any assignment I was ever given (many long years of hate and headaches in too many classes). Well said and well done! ;)

    I guess Math is just one of those subjects one likes or hates to a degree.

    You must find out what Maths are being used for then you will come to love it. It is used in computer programming, programming complex stuffs like AI and game physics. It is also used in many other fields, probably things like launching a rocket into space.

    In the words of Chevy Chase on Saturday Night Live, “It was my understanding there would be no math!” I concur with that statement and your poem! Good job.
