Algebra Teacher, Retired

She taught algebra to everyone who ever lived –
at least it seems that way to her, now that she’s done with it –
and in a hapless manner multiplies by x the ones she did
teach x y equals y x to. Her head is large with recollection –
full of her mathematics-ridden aptitudes which were
her ticket to a life. She never married, though had she
been born a man she would have passionately loved a wife.
