x Rated

x marks the spot
and so it is...

to the pirate a treasure
while the penitent lament
the teacher's 'measure'
and the calendar's 'event'

Romans called it ten
Greeks called it chi
Jews called it oxen
but me, i ask why?

these colliding diagonals
when joined at the waist
with concealed credentials
known to the chaste

are both feared and revered
with pride and with shame
while the unlearned sneered
'why, that 'tis my name!'
