Hypotenuse!

Sides the same,
Angles equal,
It’s their game!

Isosceles?
2 equal sides,
2 equal angles,
Playground slides!

Scalene triangles,
Have one catch,
Different sides,
No angles match!

Acute triangles?
Sides in threes,
All angles less,
Than 90º,

Obtuse triangle?
Angle measure,
More than 90,
What a pleasure…
Those are 6,
