(To My Sister, Ma Mary Musongong who offered me her log book as I entered Form One at Sacred Heart College in Bamenda, Cameroon)
I don’t know about quantum mechanics
But I know something about algebraic equations
I have worked on sets and subsets
And I have solved complex mathematical problems.
Even so, I have not Solomon’s maths set
Nor the Wise Men’s compass
But I have David’s protractor
And Christ’s four figure table.
