Here is a little poem I once submitted to the American Classical League’s journal, the Classical Outlook. Can’t imagine why it didn’t get published…

The Latin poem:


tres multiplice quattuor, 
eadem quattuor multiplice tres;
cur illam amo ego non eadem
illa amat me?

This was based on a meme I saw on tumblr that had a similar poem in Spanish:


Si 3×4 es el mismo que 4×3
¿Por qué lo que siento por ella
no es lo mismo que ella siente por mí?
