Farewell mr. Fractal

Benoît Mandelbrot passed away.
He was 85.

He poured colour
On otherwise pale equations

He traced the path
Analyzing the bizarre ways
In which numbers play
Between zero and infinity

He was walking to measure
Britain's coast
At various distances

Fractals call him dad

Now he walks
On the white chalky paths
In the Great Attractor's garden.
