Puff the Magic Fractal



Puff, the magic fractal lived by the dimensional sea
And frolicked between the integers in a land called Mandelbrot Lee,
Little Benoît's research paper loved that rascal puff
And brought him string theories and dark night sky riddles and other fancy stuff. 
Oh...

Puff, the magic fractal lived by the dimensional sea
And frolicked between the integers in a land called Mandelbrot Lee,
Puff, the magic fractal lived by the dimensional sea
And frolicked between the integers in a land called Mandlebrot Lee.

Together they would travel on a mathematical set with a self-similar sail
Benoît kept a lookout perched on puffs iterated tail,
Profs and princes would bow whenever they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flags when puff roared out his name.
Oh...

Puff, the magic fractal lived by the dimensional sea
And frolicked between the integers in a land called Mandelbrot Lee,
Puff, the magic fractal lived by the dimensional sea
And frolicked between the integers in a land called Mandlebrot Lee.

A dragon lives forever but not so of little boys
Painted scales and fractured rings make way for other toys.
One blue night it happend, Benoît's research paper came no more
And puff that mighty fractal dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales replicated like rain,
Puff no longer went to play along the theoretical lane.
Without his life-long friend, puff could not be brave,
So puff that mighty fractal dragon sadly scaled into his cave. 
Oh...

Puff, the magic fractal lived by the dimensional sea
And frolicked between the integers in a land called Mandelbrot Lee,
Puff, the magic fractal lived by the dimensional sea
And frolicked between the integers in a land called Mandlebrot Lee.









Benoît Mandelbrot
1924 - 2010
