      1,000,000 is the Loneliest Number- a poem by LDS

      Ok, well, I wrote this poem for English, our poetry portfolio; woo! We had to use this book with 10 suggestions to write our poems on. This idea of using number, symbols, or geometric symbols is what I used. Kinda a different concept for poetry, but this poem quickly came to me. Some of you may have seen it in the world record thread, FYI, but, now it has its own thread.

      1,000,000 is the Loneliest Number

      Everyone may think 1 is the loneliest number
      But not me.
      1,000,000 is the loneliest number.
      1 can boast a high self esteem,
      but not 1,000,000.
      1,000,000 has 6 0ís staring him in the face.
      The poor 1 in 1,000,000,
      For he is the loneliest number.
      Plain old 1 only knows itself,
      Not that heís missing a thing.
      He has no empty seats.
      1,000,000 has 6 empty seats.
      1,000,000 doesnít want to be alone,
      He is waiting for 6 more
      That will never come.
      He lives his time in lonely anxiousness.
      Feel sorry for 1,000,000,
      Because he wants more.
      But 1 likes to be alone,
      He hasnít invited anyone else.
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.

      Reminds me a LOT of root 3. Harold & Kumar Guantanamo Bay recites this poem and it is hysterical.

      I don't remember the author..

      I’m sure that I will always be
      A lonely number like root three

      The three is all that’s good and right,
      Why must my three keep out of sight
      Beneath the vicious square root sign,
      I wish instead I were a nine

      For nine could thwart this evil trick,
      with just some quick arithmetic

      I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
      Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

      When hark! What is this I see,
      Another square root of a three

      As quietly co-waltzing by,
      Together now we multiply
      To form a number we prefer,
      Rejoicing as an integer

      We break free from our mortal bonds
      With the wave of magic wands

      Our square root signs become unglued
      Your love for me has been renewed

      Huh.... I just simply wrote it, this idea came purely from my head. Nothing I saw made me think "Now THAT'S what I'm gonna write about". So in that poem, too the number doesn't like itself. And, lol, the speaker is the square root of three

      No, not the speaker, the author. The guy who WROTE the poem.

      I was just saying that the speaker of the poem is the square root of three, the "I wish instead I were a nine" part for instance

      That's wrong. That's a metaphor. Metaphors are comparisons without saying "like" or "as" but instead directly stating. Take this line


      I’m sure that I will always be
      A lonely number like root three
      he is saying they are is lonely, the same way root 3 is. The other root 3 is his soulmate. He wishes he were not so lonely... etc.

      The speaker is the author.

      Metaphors can be tricky for some.


      And wouldn't the lonliest be 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000x10^10,00 0,000,000,000,000,.....

      Hehehehe.

      Good poem

      Good poem
      Well, I can do them, after I read it a second time it made sense. They aren't that hard for me. That one was just...an odd one. And, of course I'm not gonna say that in a poem! 1,000,000 is just...the average high number that I can write! I'm sure you knew that I knew that, and knew that that's why I didn't say it like that.
