A stick I found that weighed two pound: I sawed it up one day In 
pieces eight of equal weight! 
How much did each piece weigh? (Everybody says “a quarter of a 
pound”, which is wrong.) 

In Shylock’s bargain for the flesh was found No mention of the 
blood that flowed around: So when the stick was sawed in eight, 
The sawdust lost diminished from the weight.
