Thanks to Pythagoras,
Right-angled triangles
Can be computed with
Relative ease.

Only employ his neat
Trigonometrical
Rule if one angle is
Ninety degrees.

Merrily-scarily
Dear A C Bowden
Constructs all these poems
So effortlessly,

Giving the feeling they're
Extemporaneous -
How that's accomplished's
Enigma to me.

Today's Word-a-Day is "antimetabole" - does that suggest anything to anyone? Like invent one in double-dactyl format?

Franklin D. Roosevelt
Scribbled: "The Japs will be
Fighting to die if they're
Dying to fight".

Then he deleted this
Antimetabole,
Thinking such rhetoric
Sounded too trite.

Higgledy, piggledy,
Prof. Peter Higgs
proposes a boson
with much gravitas.

Called the God Particle,
Quantumechanically
It is the reason
We must go to Mass.

Henry Plantagenet,
Angered by Becket, said:
"Would I were rid of that
Turbulent priest!"

Several knights heard his
Antiepiscopal
Words, and the prelate was
Shortly deceased.
