Just doesn't add up

Pythagoras once fell off a ladder And landed on a venomous adder This adder couldn't add Calculus made it sad Algebra and theorems made it madder.

G'day Nandita... you are always good for a giggle Nandita. It appears that maths has infiltrated the board game snakes and ladders - regards - Lindsay

Should be a 10, but had to settle for a 7. Excellent rhyme and a very funny limerick! I think you have another new limerick for me to check out.
