When I read this mathematical poem by Leigh Mercer, I knew I had found a treasure:

[latex] \frac{12 + 144 + 20 + 3 \sqrt{4}}{7} + \left ( 5 \times 11 \right ) = 9^{2} + 0 [/latex]

*A dozen, a gross, and a score**Plus three times the square root of four**Divided by seven**Plus five times eleven**Is nine squared and not a bit more.*

Here is another one:

*A mathematician named Ben**Could only count modulo ten.**He said, “When I go**Past my last little toe,**I have to start over again.”*
