An Infinity Twice

Juan, to be three forever count five feet
per line, for one foot can’t count for two

At the same time, and that frees up ‘three’
 ‘to be an infinity twic­e—for a quatrain inj

any number of iambic line

  1. John a barber shaves everybody on the island who does not shave himself or herself.
    The question is does he shave himself!?

  2. John I’m glade you got the right Juan. I was a little worried that no one would get my ‘Goedel numbering’. By the way if I can ill send the link a history of infinity podcast. It quite interesting

  3. Good morning Jim. You puzzle me with this one: a regular brain teaser, and my poor old head is kinda empty over here in England on a wet grey afternoon.
    I like the idea of infinity twice – in contrast to infinity an infinite number of times. And it amuses me that you are counting out the feet in an iambic pentameter and scoring the lines in a quatrain too. Finally I relished the absence of any punctuation mark at the close: no period as you would say, or no full stop for we Brits (which always seems so much more emphatic!).
    Enjoy your weekend over there! Best wishes, John
