Cra**acus Abbacus

Rack my brains while timing trains
Feeling all of those little pains
Face suffocated with arduous dread
Head stuffed with feathers like lead.

Eyes unfocus, lets the mind stray
I silently begin to think and pray
"Let me know what to do, what to say,
If I get this wrong, there's be hell to pay."

Numbers running around my mind
Their pointed feet ever unkind
Throbbing, aching mind of confusion
Suffering under a false delusion.

Facade of understanding, weak
Pulsing pain lets knowledge leak
Sniffing and snuffling like a pig
Trying hopelessly at doing trig.

Formulae confuse once lucid thought
Arithmetic to be known not taught
Equations clogs the memory full
Brain shuts down, defeated, dull.

~ Wrote this on the 19th when I was trying to do my maths homework and had too great of a headache to get my thoughts around what the hell I was supposed to be doing. I hope the title doesn't offend but I think it suits the poem since its basic meaning is 'Maths is C***' ~

Give me a reason to love life
Prove to me happiness is real
Show me the undying light of hope
And I will cast away the darkness.

Acording to my calculations...
I was never any good at math. To me it seemed as though there were no answers. That the teachers made them up on the spot in order to make fun of me. Either way, this poem captures the kind of thoughts that pass through ones head whilst doing homework.
