Ah, But Math is Like That Too

When poets are so dissed
by engineers and physicists
they really should consider this:

(4+2) is just like 6

and keeping that in mind
81’s like the square of 9
and in case you think these
are a poet's tricks,
√36 is too like 6
(in this, poetry’s like

In fact, when quantities and things align
like is like an equal sign
and, what’s more,
(4×4) is 16’s metafour
