The Square Root of Three

This is probably the geekiest, sweetest, and most awesome poem I’ve ever heard.

The Square Root of Three

ย  by David Feinberg

I fear that I will always be,
A lonely number like root three,
The three is all thatโ€™s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight

Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine,
For nine could thwart this evil trick,
With just some quick arithmetic

I know Iโ€™ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality

When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three,
Has quietly come waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
And form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer

We break free from our mortal bonds,
And with the wave of magic wands,
Our square root signs become unglued
And love for me has been renewed
