The Lyrics

If you're not into gaming, different sided dice are designated with a D and then the number of sides - so a die with 6 sides is a D6, for example. There is a group of five shapes with 4 to 20 sides called the Platonic Solids that work well for dice. One of those shapes is the dodecahedron, with 12 sides.
It's dodecahedral
With one dozen sides
Each one pentagonal
When you subdivide

The Pythagoreans
Back in ancient Greece
Knew dodecahedron's
Twenty vertices

Now everyone knows pyramids and prisms are nice
Forget about those 'cause you know
That Platonic solids make the best dice

It's dodecahedral
But just be aware
It's one polyhedral
Of many out there

A dodecahe
A dodecahe
A dodecahedron D-12

Cute, the syncopation of the OS kind of begs for polysyllabic substitutions. But you did miss a beat or two, and I'm left wishing for just a little bit of a story....

Lame and uninspired. Boring as middle school math class. Sorry, low score. . Michael J's nerd speech just as lame and doesn't help your case. He should do the puff-puff and chill instead of posting from the library!

Mike: Thanks! Not sure how much more I could write about a die, though :) Mary: Sorry you didn't like it, I certainly felt creative and inspired when I wrote it! Agri: As always, delighted to hear from you! Jonathan: Appreciate it, maybe with a little more effort I could become king of the dice parodies :) Susanna: Many thanks! May all your D12's roll just the way you want.
