Just For Fun (in honor of my brother)

I wonder if statisticians
Get caught
With static in their ears
When computing
Numbers and odds
After all
Probabilities
Offer possibilities
No promises
Within every equation
Is static

Problematic
When it takes only
One more number
To change the solution
But I do words

dversepoets.com Monday quadrille exactly 44 words excluding the title. The word is static.

I wasn’t going to do one but today is a mental health day, so this is really just for fun. I am offering another also.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    A fun way to use the word, especially the idea of statisticians getting caught with static in their ears. I’ll stick to words.

  10. Alas statistics are hard to interpret so it can say almost anything you want.
