The Two of You

Seldom does one see

     the two of you apart

The whole of you is found in two

    that have become as one

For one is two except by choice

    if two cannot be one

The math is strong

   and quite the figure

That describes the function

    as if to square the problem

But math and life are none the same

    save for its course of action

If two is one for reasons sake

   then functions are illusions

Formulating festering calculus

    mastering minds of co-sine

Ha! you say it cannot be

   to root out the problem

Yes, but see it can be done

    if one applies the problem

High school math is not the same

  as if the function tarried.

But when the teacher taught

   the proper value

It became all the more clear

    for the student and the number

The same it is to be

    not more and none the less

If figures rounded out apply

    so the two of you can remember
