    Wink Tell us a fib!

    I was reading about a recently invented poetic form called the 'fib' today on the Guardian website. See here for info:http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/book...y-pi-fibonacci

    The fib is a poetic form based on the Fibonacci numbers. The poem consists of 6 lines with a syllable count 1,1,2,3,5,8.

    Well it looks like fun, so I've had a go. Why don't you join me poetic maths enthusiasts?

    Number crunching

    Yum.
    Six,
    seven,
    eight, nine, one
    delicious numbers
    for my tum. Crunch! Munch! Minus one.

    Wink

    Half a league, half a league,
    Half a league onward,
    All in the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.
    "Forward, the Light Brigade!
    "Charge for the guns!" he said:
    Into the valley of Death
    Rode the six hundred.


    Into the valley of Death, perhaps, sooner, as far as I am concerned, than into the teeth of this Fibonacci!!

    But of course I admire you for being willing to try practically anything!

    I
    tried
    this fib
    but found that I had
    fallen short of the requirements!

    Some
    people
    are so hard
    to please. You know what
    they say? Everyone's a critic!

    This
    thing,
    this fib,
    as you call
    it, is such a pain
    that I’ll ignore it hereafter

    oh,
    well,
    let me
    begin one:
    this is difficult,
    but I'm sure things will turn out fine.

    fibonacci will be broken.

    squeeze
    hold

    in. How terrible. My maths sucks!

    why
    do
    these things
    at all folks
    when most make little
    sense, pray tell me, pray tell me please
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    I'll have a go. Are they supposed to come full circle?

    Cat,
    called
    mini
    lioness,
