Carl Frederick Gauss, prince
of mathematics, clever boys
could not catch up, complex
numbers he declared, are
natural, i being equal to
the square root of minus one
so x squared plus 1 is zero.
Trace a circle on a plane
r is for radius, how many times
does the path go around zero
shrinking r varies the route
continuously until crossing 0
point where our root is found.
