Math for seniors

Past our primes
we lose our wholes

and even our fractions
seem improper.

Once reasonable numbers
become irrational;

we lose any sense
of absolute value.

We see we will never solve for x

yet always pi is endlessly available.

So let us eschew
the greatest
common divisors,
embrace our lowest
common denominators.

Let us eat together,
while we can.
