How I Learned to Factor Fear

A factor is simply a number that is multiplied to get a product
You must take apart the number, get inside and see its prime
Multiplying its existence in reverse to see the values, lessons learned
From one, three, seven, eleven, thirteen, seventeen, nineteen.

Fear is a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc.
Whether the threat is real or imagined, you must get inside,
Reverse multiply to see the values
Of loss, vice, anguish, anger, sadness, solace, torment.

Class is dismissed; leave your papers on the desk
Fate will get to grading them, if I do not
But it will be less kind.

There will be a pop quiz sometime in life,
And as always, a final that ends when you hear:
Pencils down.
