Oblongs - Poem by Giovanna Marasco

Oblongs are NOT real
They do not exist
They are only in your mind
And on pieces of paper

You will NEVER see an oblong
Walk down the high street,
With little baby oblongs in tow

Whoever told you they are real
Your first grade math teacher?

Don't you believe me?
You should believe me
I'm not the one spreading lies
About mythical shapes.

If oblongs are real
And they aren't,
Then they are the antichrist
But they're not
So don't worry.
