Word Problem

“As happy as the day is long.”
Joy equals Time? That must be wrong.
Familiarity is Time,
Well, times Acquaintance, and if I’m
Recalling that old saw correctly,
That equation leads directly
To Contempt. If one may say
F=C, then (T x A)
Must equal F and C; likewise,
If Joy is Time (J=T),
Then (J x A) must equal C
(Contempt), and everyone I love
Will hate me soon. Proof? See above.
Since that conclusion I reject,
Then Joy and Time don’t intersect
As stated in that simile.
What fools these English majors be.
