The mathematician

Determinant in what you do,
The mathematician adds, subtracts, divides, multiplies
And often complicates
The mind of the one who breaks mathematics.

Let us be straight, parables, equations and inequalities
Or the assembly of a Tangram;
Let be limits, derivatives, integrals and functions
Or the fantastic stories of Malba Tahan.

Tangenciando our ways,
Majestic discipline fascinates us
And at the same time, it teaches us
That the "problems" are not thorns.
