My Friend I Admire


My friend crossed seventy
Three years back
He's a bundle of energy
He runs, runs, and runs.

He runs in many races
An authority on running
Well known is he
In running circles.

Math's his profession
He keeps count of numbers
Primes two, three, five, seven...
Twenty five less than hundred.

He keeps count of time
Running thousand meters
Keeps count of calories
To maintain optimal weight.

He solves a problem easily
Like Euler did long ago
He taught me irrational numbers
Pi, e, and golden ratio.
