One Plus Zero Is Not Two

By CausticChlorine

Two is the number of the name of god,
as god is and was always me.

Too, the problem here, is that a one
doesn't add up to god gracefully.

To be one, you see, is all I need,
because it only takes one 
to make a one man weed.

Second fiddle to a god unlike your own
doesn't set a man sensibly.

Sensibly seems simpler symbolism settled, seer,
seeing as the god is and was still me.

Sedimentary seeding leads to insecurity weeding 
breeding meek, your masculinity. 

And if you ought to be a man then you better have 
a plan else you're gonna be so brittle, heed.

Author's Note:

If I haven't got a plan and I can't seem to stand that improvising is the way for me, there's a problem fit for fixing and a fit not thrown that's mixing, but I'd rather not have company.

    Holy alliteration batman. I loved everything about this. The word choices. The structure. I hate that I'm just now finding your work. For that I apologize, but know this was clever and well written.
