I Can’t Figure It Out!

Mathematical Sabbatical

Romans 16:17-18
New International Version (NIV)

17 I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. 18 For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.

Mathematical Sabbatical

It’s simple mathematics,
Plain as one plus one is two,
Put some folks together
And they’ll know just what to do,

That is of course unless
There is a derivation,
Or just what is meant
At this exact moment and location,

And then there is always,
The problem of subtraction,
It takes away from everything,
It’s such a darn distraction,

Just when things seem to settle down
And reason we’re applying,
The cost is nearly settled
But we begin that multiplying,

There’s always hope, I suppose
If we make the right decision,
But Lord above, please keep us from
Choosing to use that long division,

And if we do, forgive me please
But I’ll refuse to be fanatical,
I’ll just have to pack up all my bags
And take a mathematical sabbatical.
