Pythagoras found fame from drinking maths;
of course, that’s so last year’s hypot-e-nuse —
all of which is ancient Greek to me,
as Pathe news I much prefer to see.
All sides are square, so choose which one you like,
but only if your angle is quite right.
His calculator was so digital –
the digits of both hands were decimal.
It’s Q. E. D. when this you ‘up’ and ‘sum’:
Quite Easily [when all is said and] Done.
[Health warning: maths can damage the brain!
- E. D. – the whole reason why my grandson set me this subject:
Quod erat demonstrandum = what was to be demonstrated!]
