e

 

by John R. Busch

 

e is elegant. e is for elephant.

e is a summer date.

e is like p, a real number to you and I,

about 2.718.

 

e is interesting.e is compounding.

e is what makes me, me.

When calculating interest

compounded continuous,

itís A = Pert.

 

Now ex is never complex.

Some solace when youíve given up hope.

When evaluating its derivative,

itís really quite inquisitive,

the exponential is its own slope.

 

My love for e, is not bounded by Z.

Itís a much better number than ďaĒ.

For ďaĒ is a constant, and e in an instant,

is the inverse of logarithmic natural-e.
