Smile Chal­lenge

The Hamilton Spectator - - OUR PULSE - LIV MCISAAC, GRADE 9

Peo­ple are sim­ply in­te­gers. Just ups and downs on one big spec­trum. Some can­cel oth­ers out, And some­times the pos­i­tives are not great enough, To over­power the neg­a­tives. Math is a lan­guage. Frac­tions are tran­si­tions, Ex­pres­sions, phrases, And num­bers; Words. Math is a lan­guage, And peo­ple are in­te­gers, So I guess that makes peo­ple lan­guages too. But we are far from the same. Are we dif­fer­ent be­cause of our eyes, Or our tongues? Per­haps we don’t all speak the same lan­guage, Per­haps some are higher, And some are lower. Be­cause peo­ple, Are sim­ply, In­te­gers.
