Amusements in Mathematics

In Mathematicks he was greater
Than Tycho Brahe or Erra Pater: dd
For he, by geometrick scale,
Could take the size of pots of ale;
Resolve, by sines and tangents, straight,
If bread or butter wanted weight;
And wisely tell what hour o’ th’ day
The clock does strike by algebra.

BUTLER’S Hudibras,

1917.
