I just found this in an old box of keepsakes. I believe, I was about fifteen when I wrote it.

Six Degrees ~ Twenty-Four Hours

Six degrees of separation

and twenty-four hours of pain

Is this how Noah felt

when he couldn’t stop the rain?

 

Six degrees of separation

And twenty-four hours of pain

because it’s easier to cut out her heart

than to try to forget his name.

 

Six degrees of separation

And twenty-four hours of pain

For the very last time tonight

She will cry for what might have been.

The theory and results:

In the first large-scale test of the six degrees hypothesis, called the Small World project, scientists from Columbia University in New York had participants send e-mails to acquaintances with the goal of eventually reaching one of the listed targets. Results, published in 2003 in the journal Science, showed the targets were reachable in five to seven steps. However, many of the chains terminated prematurely, which the scientists attribute to lack of incentive by individuals to reach a target.
