$\hskip1.5in$ The Square Root of Three $$\mathcal I\text{ fear that I may always be}$$ $$\text{A lonely number like} \sqrt{3}$$ $$\text{The } 3 \text{ is all that's good and right}$$ $$\text{Why must my three keep out of sight}$$ $$\text{Beneath this vicious} \sqrt{\text{square root }} \text{ sign ?}$$ $$\text{I wish instead I were a 9}$$ $$\text{For a 9 could thwart this evil trick,}$$ $$\text{With just some quick arithmetic } \color{grey}{\left(\sqrt 9 = 3\right)}$$ $$\text{I know I'll never see the sun, as } 1.7321$$ $$\text{Such is my reality, a sad irrationality} \color{grey}{\left(\sqrt 3\not\in \Bbb Q\right)}$$ $$\text{But hark! What is this I see,}$$ $$\text{Another square root of a three}$$ $$\text{Has quietly come waltzing by,}$$ $$\text{Together now we multiply }\color{grey}{\left(\sqrt 3 \times \sqrt 3\right)}$$ $$\text{To form a number we prefer,}$$ $$\text{Rejoicing as an integer} \color{grey}{\left( 3 \in \Bbb Z\right)}$$ $$\text{We break free from our mortal bonds}$$ $$\text{And with a wave of magic wands }$$ $$\text{Our} \sqrt{\text{square root }} \text{ signs become unglued}$$ $$\text{And your love for me has been renewed.}$$
