Twas the Night Before Christmath

Twas the Night Before Christmath and all cross the 'net,
Readers wanted their updates, or they might get upset . . .

And I sat and struggled to come up with rhymes,
Just lookin' for a chance to work in some primes:

''Now Thirteen! Now Nineteen! Twenty-Nine and Seven!
On Twenty-Three, Five, and Two, and Eleven!''

But I needed a hook; lest it all fall apart,
So I rushed to the end, and went straight for the heart!

Whether Heart of a Poem, or Heart of the Season,
The Heart is the Hope, the Heart is the Reason

That I can say to my readers, voice cheery and bright
Happy Christmas to All and to All a Good Night.

It's a great poem, but shouldn't it be a dot product?

Possibly. I only did a quick lookup online to doublecheck that I didn't get something backward. I can't even say what site I took it from, or if it was just "Fd" and I added the X on my own. Oddly, I don't usually use an X if there are other letters involved.

The cross product is "torque". It probably should be a dot product.

Simple fix to make. Problem is finding the time in the next two days.
