Know a little history

That now we will tell

The math came up

From antiquity here.

The Creation of Mathematics

Gave up the need

From the struggle of all the people

From the beginning of humanity.

…

From natural numbers

Zero is lower value

Unlike the others

It is the only one without a predecessor.

…

In the nine-out test

Not to be trusted

Take the real test

For sure to arrive.

…

If geo means earth

Metria is the measure

The word geometry

It is well defined.

And it ends like this:

When teaching math

Be fair and sincere

Show it is impossible

A division by zero.

A fraternal hug to all

Believe this truth

In the world of math

There is no difficulty.
