392 – a=4 b=5 c=6 d=7 x=15 y=11

Poem number 392
.
a=4 b=5 c=6 d=7 x=15 y=11
.
A plus B plus C is X
Y is B plus C
A plus Y is X again
And Y is A plus D
.
Oh Algebra, I love you
You are symmetry sublime
Equality in number form
Unchanging over time
.
Bracket AB bracket minus
X will equal B
So X plus B all over A
Is 2C minus D
.
Equality, that’s all you need
Just treat both sides the same
If you always keep your symmetry
You’re never out the game
.
A plus D is B plus C
2A plus D is X
Take off Y you’re back to A
It’s Algebraic sex!
.
It’s numbers, pure and simple
Nothing here to cause alarm
You’d love it if you’d only learn
To see their graceful charm
.
The way they waltz and pirouette
Around the equals sign
Constant, always constant
Ever placid and benign.
.
It’s algebra, it’s symmetry
With lines so sharp and clean
Equations for a higher truth
So beautiful, serene.
