Moving Up

Moving Up

A Chapter by Dave Brown



There was an old lady professor

Who lived in a pink and green boot

And tho’ she was a mathematician

She found square root a real brute


Calculus, geometry and trig’

With these she hadn’t a problem

But when square root was attempted

Her mind was left a-wobblin


She then started a petition, to make

Square root a forbidden fruit

To just completely eliminate it

As a mathematical pursuit


Since then, the college

Of mathematicians has agreed

For future square rooting

There is absolutely no need


She has been rewarded her endeavor

No longer down in the boot's dark toe

Her reward has moved her way up

To the boot penthouse, with patio

Math is enough to give anyone a headache but it doesn't have to be difficult if you know the formulas. 5 parts tonic, one part gin. Sure to inspire a mathematical grin.
