1,3,5,7, or 9
Is the end of a number of this kind:
A divisor of 2 and reminder 1
Means what type dividend, everyone? NOT EVEN!
When square tiles can’t be wangled
Into a 2-row rectangle:
If two odds are multiplied,
What is the product that you find? NOT EVEN!
These numbers had mystique--
Viewed as ‘male’ by Ancient Greeks!
When there’s no Olympics – winter or summer,
That year is what kind of number? NOT EVEN!
A curb address that ends in 6
Is opposite this residence.
An interstate goin’ north and south
Has what kind of number for the route? NOT EVEN!
If you pick a book and open wide,
This page number’s on the right-hand side.
And ev’ry time I write haiku,
The syllable count when I’m through: NOT EVEN!
Do a ‘cascade’ so nothing falls
Takes this number of juggling balls.
Now my ‘odd’ rap is done:
Could it climb the charts to #1? NOT EVEN!
