Verse And Worse

Random Wit, Errant Rhyme. Not A Literary Crime

The young maths genius practised his sums
Speed + Angle x Drag = Tangle
Yes, he could ski without fandangle

Bonnie Bonsai said...

That is nice. My first time to come across the word: fandangle.

Kirti said...

Yes, it's probably helpful to be good at math to prevent getting mangled or strangled when wrangling with a mountain...

Eddie Bluelights said...

But the theorem he learned of Pythagoras
He forgot it completely when asked in maths class
He tried to remember in the depth of his blues
Which one of three sides was the hypotenuse!
