COMPLETE TEXT: "Fingers & Toes" (Front Pull-out Quoted and Bolded)Fingers & Toes
by Frank Elkins
I'm supposed to write a poem today,
though I really don't have much to say –
but I'm going to write one anyway
because I really love a challenge.
So here it goes
from a man who knows
you can't learn math
on your fingers and toes.
To restrict yourself
to only twenty
is an obtuse limit
to gaining plenty.
It diminishes your ability
to consider concepts like infinity –
An artificial boundary
for possibility and reality.
Counting fingers and toes
is a con – so to speak.
Even worse, they need to be
trimmed once a week!
