TURKEY AFTER MATH
 

how many hands of solitaire
before recognizing
a hand repeating itself?
how many hands does it take
to say i love you
how many pins dance on angel's wings
how much blood did a turnip hold
how can love be a noun and not a verb?

look 'em in the eyes and tell 'em
turkeys not on yer mind
exponential math explosions
then implosions
