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 $

*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.”*
