Need Help With Poem (Rhymes)

Im sorry, I know this doesnt belong in here and I know this doesnt have anything to do with technology, but is really important and I need it for today!

There is a project that I need to turn in tomorrow, I have been working on it for a week already. This project is about making a Poem with math words and basically Im 80% done.

Now, this project needs to have specific words (geometry words) and there are some words that I cannot find a rhyme for. I need a rhyme for the words

Collinear Points
Opposite Rays
Undefined Terms
Line Segments
Initial Point

I would like to ask everybody if you guys can help me out to make a rhyme for this words.

I only need 1 paragraph with all of them, but they have to make sense.

Will really appreciate all your help!

Thanks!

  1. No matter how stupid this thread is I'm sure you'll get replies. However I suck at maths and have no idea what you're talking about.

    Good luck!
  2. are you trying to rhyme the first word or the 2nd?
  3. How about a limerick?

    something like:

    I drew a line segment on a graph
    Some collinear points on a path
    From an initial point place
    I drew opposite rays
    whose undefined terms made me laugh

    It's been a long time since I studied geometry, so maybe the terms don't make any sense there...but I'm sure you could modify it to make sense.
  4. I guess I just feel sorry for you.

    Collinear Points
    Unbending Joints

    Opposite Rays
    Overworked Haze

    Undefined Terms
    Unrefined Worms

    Line Segments
    You’re Too Tense

    Initial Point
    Disappoint


    Like this (utter crap):

    While slaving away on collinear points,
    My pencil would fall from my unbending joints.
    The mental depiction of opposite rays
    Put my thoughts in a furiously overworked haze.
    Arduously working with undefined terms
    Sent me off to the lib'ry and its unrefined 'worms.
    As I pled all aghast, "Please help with 'line segments'!"
    They said with a smile, "Go and play, you're too tense."
    "Please, just one thing! What is the 'initial point'?"
    "I'd explain, but I failed. My answer would dissapoint..."

    Hey thanks a lot, will try to use that as part of the poem

    One question, what is the right way to say it

    two or more points will always joint
    or
    two or more points will always be joint

    I'd say the second one. But a great rule of grammar/life: "When in doubt, throw it out." Just re-write if you're having troubles. You don't think I wrote that poem in one quick pass, do you? :wink: :lol:
  9. Energy of life, the power to anoint,
    given Terra’s Sol, humanities Initial point

    Sun and Moon, light of opposite rays,
    battle for supremacy through the twilight haze

    Sun waxes as Moon wanes, collinear points of light,
    Sol harangues Moon, aroint thee dusky night

    Contesting ownership of the sky as rival firms,
    the conflict waxes endless on undefined terms

    Sun and Moon, light as line segments,
    each claiming heavenly ownership through the cyclic regiment .

    the two sound good to me hehe, Im not an english native speaker thats why Im asking hehe :P
  11. I have to use easy words, not saying is bad, just that some words are kinda complicated :cry:
  12. :lol: Heck no, I don't mind. Fun breeds fun. Besides, I came up with the rhymes before the poem, so I had to shoe-horn it. :wink:

    Slim, you'll do great. Don't worry. :D

    Just ask away if you have any more questions...

    Ah men, I have a good rhyme, Im finished with it. Now I just hope the class likes it :)

    Wish me luck
  14. Here it is, dont blame me please, first timer :oops:

    [Got it from a random site just to make this longer]
    If you are an even number
    you always have a pair
    So if you look around
    your buddy will always be there
    but...
    If you are an odd number
    there is always a lonely one
    He looks around to find his buddy
    but he is the only one

    If you have collinear points
    Two or more points will always be joint
    And if you find opposite rays
    Then let me rephrase
    cuz you don’t wanna have undefined terms
    If you have line segments on a graph
    you know there is a path
    From the initial point place
    all over the graph base

    What you think?
  15. hey hey hey!

    I know rhymes are not something I like to do.

    now, I used wanna and cuz because this project is called "american idol" (lol) and is for my geometry class, we dont have to turn in any paper or anything, we just have to stand in front of the class and say your poem or song out loud thats it. So I wrote cuz cause it sounds like cause, getting out of correct grammar doesnt hurt anybody and I used wanna cuz it sounds better than want to :)
    Nobody is gonna check any paper or stuff so thats why I didnt worry about writing the right way.

    There are gonna be some people making some rap songs so I wont be the only one talking like that :)

    Just to clarify, now I think my grade would be a B+? or even an A- :)
  16. Hey, sounds good. Like I said, you'll do great. :)

    Just one question though. That "cuz...wanna" line doesn't rhyme with anything. Is that intentional or did you run out of words? :P :lol:

    Okay, so maybe I lied. I have a few more questions. :P Are "even number", "odd number", and "pair" the other words you're supposed to use? Any others I missed? Cuz now I wanna add mo' linez to my rap, yo. :P
  17. Hehe, thanks

    the cuz and wanna are intentional :)

    like I said, I need this words to make it look not so serious :P

    Preparing to school ready to go in 2 hours I should be saying this in front of 20 people waaaa!

    You need to work on your meter, but damn it's still impressive.

    Collinear Points
    Like stiff soldiers on parade
    One line through them all

    The brevity means you cant go too far astray!
