lyrics

Conic Section, Rhythm Section,
Intersection of a Plane and Cones: x 2
The cornerstone of Analytic Geometry!

If you were the Archimedes,
You would burn the enemy ships,
With a parabolic mirror,
pointed out to sea!

Or maybe Johannes Kepler,
Take the data, and it tells ya,
Orbiting around the sun
in perfect ellipses.

Or your name is Alfred Lee
And you invented LORAN-C
To track location and the speed.
At sea apply Hyperbole!

Or you’re from an ancient clan,
let’s say Mesopotamian.
The Circle spins upon a stand,
A potter’s wheel with clay in hand.

Conic Section, Rhythm Section,
Intersection of a Plane and Cones: x 2
The cornerstone of Analytic Geometry!

Menaechmus, from Alopeconnesus,
Had a Delian dilemma,
Tryin’ to double up
The volume of a cube!

Which is how he stumbled
on the conic sections. Intersections
of two parabolic sections,
Answers they exude.

Given names: Parabola,
Ellipse, and the Hyperbola,
from Apollonius of Perga,
Didn’t name the circle for-ya.

Circles are a special case:
Ellipses but with added grace.
A horizontal plane embrace,
That’s parallel to the cone base.
