Blog Challenge

Do you have the skills to combine your math and creativity to make the best "Fib"?

The challenge is to write the best "Fib" (poem that fulfills the Fibonacci mathematical sequence). For more information on this phenomenon that is sweeping the blog world, see the following sites and articles:

In short, the poem must fulfill the syllable requirement set up by this pattern: (If you have read The DaVinci Code, this sequence may be familiar.)

The Fibonacci numbers are the sequence of numbers {F_n}_(n= defined by the linear recurrence equation

F_n=(1)

with F_1=. As a result of the definition (?), it is conventional to define F_0=.

The Fibonacci numbers for n=, 2, ... are 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, ... (Sloane's A000045).

An example from the NY Times article:
(1)Blogs
(1)spread
(2)gossip
(3)and rumor
(5)But how about a
(8)Rare, geeky form of poetry?

Can you do it too? A handsome prize awaits the winner!!! Anyone at MBHS can enter! Anyone around the world can enter... although I don't know if I can deliver the prize too far.
