Some mathsy poetry

During a small group meeting not very long ago, I found myself having to be creative on the spot. I came up with a little poem riddled with maths references (and some other things – there is a religious element too). I would be interested in seeing how many of the references people get, so please post some comments.

coffee cups and donuts

somewhere, not too far to reach
orbits a teapot
the Pope cannot see it
monsters fly around it
telescopes search for it
and planets with four stars
bear gifts of coffee cups
and donuts; spheres knot
and cannot be untied,
the Primes march in a line
the universe is but Your shadow
