A mathematician named Klein
Thought the Möbius Loop was divine
Said he, "If you glue
The edges of two
You get a weird bottle like mine."

I'm very happy to say
My Klein bottle got here today.
It's really quite fine,
This bottle by Klein
In an odd topological way.

To add to dimensions one more,
You just square what you had before.
So if I've got it straight
That the strip's figure-eight,
Is Klein's figure then sixty-four?

Mathematicians try hard to floor us
With a non-orientable torus
The bottle of Klein
They say is divine
But it is so exceedingly porus.
