My sister's friend Pratiksha sent me a nice math poem. Sounds weird but it's pretty interesting:

    ((12 + 144 + 20 + (3 * 4 ^ (1/2))) / 7) + (5 * 11) = 9 ^ 2 + 0

    Which in "English" translates to:
      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.

    There are a few more poems on the Math Mayhem site. Who says there's no poetry in mathematics!
