So it goes  
In case you were wondering, my latest poem was a double tetractys, as invented by Ray Stebbing.

I guess you could call it the Western world's answer to the haiku, based on Euclidean mathematics.

double tetractys


Oh. So, not a sort of dinosaur, then.

No, a sort of number triangle.

The mathematical tetractys is really only 1,2,3,4 arranged in a triangle, but they add up to ten, hence the line of 10 at the end.

It's all a bit arbitrary, really, but it looks pretty cool on the page.
