(N.B.: It won't make any sense at all if printed in a proportional font... try Courier). If it's not immediately obvious how the limerick goes, here's a more verbal version... -psl] Integral z-squared dz from 1 to the square root of 3 times the cosine of three pi over 9 equals log of the cube root of 'e'.
