Today’s TulaToonz by Edelio De los Santos.

They say numbers and figures tell stories. What story do fractions tell?

This poet used to dream of becoming a Math teacher, but now, he’s fine. Or maybe, actually worse: he wants to express in words what the numbers have failed to tell.

“Ang Suyuan nina Numerator at Denominator” is a tanaga, a short Filipino native poem with 4 lines of 7 syllables each. It is usually compared to Japan’s haiku, but a tanaga could even be considered better due to the flexibility of topics it can cover. Like Math.
