$\dfrac {12 + 144 + 20 + 3 \sqrt 4} 7 + \paren {5 \times 11} = 9^2 + 0$

Plus three times the square root of four
Divided by seven
Plus five times eleven
Is nine squared and not a bit more.

Sends you into blind panics
Because you're not well-enough brained."

$\ds \int \limits_1^{\sqrt [3] 3} z^2 \rd z \times \cos \dfrac {3 \pi} 9 = \map \ln {\sqrt [3] e}$
Integral zee squared dee zee
From one to the cube root of three
Times the cosine
Of three pi over nine
Is the log of the cube root of e

I met a logician from Spain
And showed him a proof about chains
Not one to dawdle
He built me a model
A disproof that did cause me pain

There was a young fellow named Fisk
A swordsman, exceedingly brisk
So fast was his action
The Lorentz contraction
Reduced his longsword to a disk
