Written for my Eldest Brother’s Wedding in September of 2016

More obsessed with math, other than me, there is none
Yet here I witness the paradoxical one plus one equals one
Our family of nine is to be reborn once again
From this day forth, one family of 10
A brother of mine, for 18 years I’ve known
Now, for infinite years, yours and yours alone
So get ready to hear do-nits and pea-nits and to watch YouTube
The hilarity indescribable by numbers or shapes and cubes
May your future be as happy as today’s present
Filled with biryani and cake and chai, REPRESENT
And in this future, 1 and 1 may equal 1, or
Perhaps they will equal three or more
What numbers could I use to describe these bonds and ties?
Love is beyond where the edge of mathematics lies
So even at time’s halt, when darkness abounds, each other’s light become
Even at Earth’s end, when everything becomes wrong, each other’s right become

~Muhammad Umer Amjad
