It’s enslaved to do what people decide not to do.

It checks work and tells you if your answer is true.

People drop it and don’t appreciate,

The things that it can do that are so great.

It’s everyone’s friend in an everyday situation,

From shopping to finding the number of people in the nation.

Which is bigger: pi to the e or e to the pi?

It answers the question when you can’t even try.

Two plus two is what, four?

Have you ever even done that before?

Even problems so hard they’d make your head ache,

Your calculator handles it without a mistake.

Sine, cosine, logarithm, tan,

It can find much more than you can.

As a mathematical entity with much more knowledge than you,

it deserves some of your respect too.
