The Square and the Circle

elementary geometry

A square in dotted underwear,
square in underwear
Saw a circle sitting bare,
circle orange
He offered circle underwear,
‘Cause he had an extra pair…
Circle thanked the friendly square,
And took the square-shaped underwear,
Circle tried to pull them on,
But something happened,
What went wrong?
Square’s dotted pair of underwear,
Had straight sides,
To fit the square!
Circle gave them back to square,
And thanked him for the extra pair,
She told the friendly, little square,
I think I need round underwear…
