Poem About Archimedes

Can’t you see you’re just like me,

We all use inventions made by Archimede.


First the principle of Archimedes,

This here states that buoyancy,

Is equal to the weight of displaced Adam’s ale,

Meaning the object is able to sail.


Next there’s the claw,

This was used to guard the Syracuse wall.


He also created the screw,

This may be used a lot by you,

It’s a slender sharp pin,

With raised helical thread running around it to the end.


Have you heard of an odometer,

It’s used along with the speedometer,

It measures your distance,

So keep it for your assistance.


Last is the Pi of a circle,

Which I found in an article,

It’s the ratio of circumference to diameter,

Going straight through the parameter.
