Mathematical Star Signs

A Mass of Aries rams describes a Curl
Potentially connected to a Field
Some Fractal of Mechanics may unfurl
A Calculus of fuzzy-logic yield.

Quadratic Taurus bulls do not Equate
So don't get Knotted arguing the toss
Although with cows they'll gladly permutate
Inverting them with Product makes them Cross.

Most Geminis are tied in Causal Loop

This is a masterpiece, Diane. Your intelligence is certainly showing here. My favorite verse is this one: Most Geminis are tied in Causal Loop Because their brains are Hypobolic Plot So if you Add their salad to their soup It anti-matters them and matters not. Congratulations on having it selected as poem of the day!

Your scientific and astronomical analysis of people under the different zodiac signs is just wonderful..... Though you have added little fiction and little humour, the mathematical validity of the poem cannot be questioned. I fall under Gemini and I like the stanza on Geminians the most.... 'Most Geminis are tied in Causal Loop Because their brains are Hypobolic Plot So if you Add their salad to their soup It anti-matters them and matters not'.

To down-under from up-here: Marvel in surprise at referential wit in all its nuances. I've been away and recuperating for a long spell.

Hi Ms Diane, Very Interesting poem. True, astrologers have blackened the face of earth, so you could evade them. But I need not; for I am not a christian (Hahaha!) . Are you? And I loved reading the mathematical signs built into the poem, with those from the fuzzy logic of illogical astrology. Marvelous.100+
