Analysis of Mathematics

When a wife is almost ready
For ritual undress
And you’re some stiffly steady
And busy with the math

It means you skip the ethics
With this sort of recline
And the joy of Mathematics
May put your life online.

Cause if the tempting touch
Drops arguments on the table,
Then death from deadly crunch
Is more inevitable.

Love may increase the revel
But taste could be unfair.
That’s why perception level
Admits the flying chair!

If an ambushed decadence,
Will act without a stammer, -
Then a sample of tolerance
Forgives foe with the hammer!

If a passion of your wife,
Like a statement, throws cosmetics,
Just think about life
Without Mathematics.

Leonid Rozumenko

Someone in your domain asks me to send a letter about myself. My pleasure - favorite topic. Who am I? Can’t keep a secret - athletic, open-minded, and generous, with a wide scope, love for women, good company. With love for science and to write something everlasting, which isn’t computer programming anymore. I was born in gorgeous Kyiv (Ukraine) more than 35 years ago, lived in the USA for longer than 4 years and my language is still in progress. My poetry is also a colorful picture of the unseeing battle between “yours truly” and English grammar. My Ukrainian or Russian accent has two unreliable reasons – it’s “for fun” and “hard to get rid of”. The meaning of my last name “Rozumenko” in Ukrainian is very close to “jaba-jaba a dada” in “Crocodile Dundee II”. I have several other weaknesses but I introduce them only to my closest friends. Yours truly, Leo Rozumenko more…
