Stein Limerick

There once was a family named Stein;
There’s Gertrude, and Heller, and Ein.
Gertrude’s poems are jeered
Heller’s logic is weird
and nobody understands Ein.

Comment by Hellerstein:
Of the three of us;
Two of us are poets,
Two of us are mathematicians,
Two of us are famous,
Yet none of us is a famous mathematical poet!
