First Degree | A Poem by Ananya S. Guha

Geometry draws lines
intersecting at variables,
arithmetic is numbers
awesome, gruesome,
algebra is symbolic
could have been literature
which is now waiting for another Shakespeare.
Sociology is the obvious
wants, desires and all,
like Economics. Geography
is rains, water, deserts
pell mell after rainfall.
History is disastrous, idolatrous, but we all need
a first degree, our filigree.
