"Trivial" proclaimed Kakutani as he hurried on
But to one student the proof did not look fun
He timidly raised one hand "sir, that looks tough to me"
"C'mon boy can't you see..."

But Kakutani could not see.
He paused,
Seconds turned to minutes
"I shall present it at the start of the next lecture"

To the library he went to find the proof
However it turned out to be rather aloof
Eventually he tracked it down
But all he could do was frown

"The proof is trivial and left as an exercise for you"
The author of this paper? Kakutani, 1942
