BURNS' DAY VERSE: AULD LANG'S SINE, a trigonometric tale, Jan '18

WORDPLAY post #99
LIMERICK VERSE:  The corresponding poem by Giorgio Coniglio was originally web-published  at the OEDILF website (the Omnificent English Dictionary in Limerick Form).
SONGLINK: Another song (to the tune of "Auld Lang Sine") about Simon Lang and his trigonometric adventures in later life can be found on an earlier blogpost on our sister blog "SILLY SONGS and SATIRE". 















*  The mathematical expression in the second line of the fourth verse should
 be read as "sine-over-cos", cos being the mathematical abbreviation for cosine. The mathematical abbreviation for tangent is tan.
