inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 21 October 2021, regurgitate.

A mathematician of note,
Learned his nineteen times table by rote,
He hit 1,558,
And in cruel twist of fate,
His head exploded.

And in answer to your question, of course it does!

19 x 82 =1,558

  1. Brilliant limerick. And… you will be pleased to know that by leaving the last line unrhymed you sent my head off on a mad scramble for words that may be relevant that rhyme with note. PING! Asymptote…a word I am sure I haven’t seen or heard since high school. So I went and looked it up. You see! You are promoting maths exploration through limericks. I’m sure there’s money in that.
