The Square Root of Three - by Kumar Patel

Thursday, March 31, 2011

I fear that I will always be
A lonely number like root three

The three is all that’s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine

For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic

I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three

Has quietly come waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands

Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed.

Just saw "Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008)" - again! This poem just touched me, really.. And I heard there will be a new Harold and Kumar film: A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas and has a release date of November 4, 2011. Yey!
