Goofy Poems and Limericks

  • A keyboard poem: "Hatless Atlas"

    hat less at less point at star
    backbrace double base pound space bar
    dash at cash and slash base rate
    wow open tab at bar is great
    semi backquote plus cash huh DEL
    comma pound double tilde bar close BEL

  • A limerick based on ((12 + 144 + 20 + (3 * 4^1/2)) / 7) + (5 * 11) = 9^2 + 0

    A Dozen, a Gross and a Score,
    plus three times the square root of four,
    divided by seven,
    plus five times eleven,
    equals nine squared and not a bit more.

  • Limerick

    A mosquito was heard to complain
    That a chemist had poisoned his brain
    The cause of his sorrow
    Was para-dichloro-

  • Limerick

    There once was a girl named Irene
    Who lived on distilled kerosene
    But she started absorbin'
    A new hydrocarbon
    And since then has never benzene.

  • A limerick in honor of mathematician Paul Erdös (rhymes with Kurdish)

    A conjecture both deep and profound
    Is whether the circle is round.
    In a paper of Erdös
    Written in Kurdish
    A counterexample is found.

  • Limerick (thanks to Philip Taylor)

    A physicist named O'Leary
    Had ideas that made us all weary
    When we said "It's all twaddle"
    He said "Just a model!
    I never once called it a theory!"
