There was a young Don from Trinity
Who solved the square root of infinity
While counting the digits
He was seized by the figits
Dropped science and took up divinity
A New Solution to an Old Problem -
The Topologist's child was quite hyper
`Til she wore a Moebius diaper.
The mess on the inside
Was thus on the outside
And it was easy for someone to wipe her.
By Eleanor Ninestein.
An analyst, surname of Nero,
Is my mathematical hero.
Says he, "When in doubt,
I always start out,
'Given > 0 ...'."
