Wolfram|Alpha, Be My Valentine

Years ago when I was young,
there was something I wanted to know:
“Could math ever be super popular,
or has it begun to plateau?”

Although being “smart” and quite “witty,”
I never could figure math out.
Its numbers were letters, its letters were prime,
I wanted to stand up and shout.

But then I grew old, I became an adult,
I discovered you via my friend.
Your language was “natural” and interfaced well,
it was something I could comprehend.

You promised me math would be cool,
with your help I’d learn all of my wants,
from the many step-by-steps of integrals,
to financial things made just for quants.

You said “I’ll teach you about moles,
and then I’ll teach you about pi,
roughly seven to the power of seven
divided by four to the power of nine

How wet would you get in a storm,
how many girls are named Lorraine?
Of the countries that border Romania,
one of them is the Ukraine.

Batman and Gotham are so far away;
Capulet said much less than that lass.
If you like fun facts, we have more most days,
like caloric counts in a sea bass.

Has Wolfram|Alpha changed your life?
In fact it will never be done.
We’re adding new features at lightning-fast speed,
get ready, there’s lots more to come!
