Point for the great descants
Of starry disputants;
Equation
Of creation.
"Any Saint" by Francis Thompson
There was gorging Jack and guzzling Jimmy,
And the youngest he was little Billee.
Now when they got as far as the Equator
They'd nothing left but one split pea.
"Little Billee" by William Makepeace Thackeray
No net will hold it - always it will return
Where the ripples settle, and the sand -
It lives unmoved, equated with the stream,
As flowers are fit for air, man for his dream.

Humoring his dreaming, give him what he thinks is
Key to the arcana--plausible equation
Of the problems many in his incarnation.

In science:
The compatibility of the two equations leads to the KdV equation and mapping solutions between the two systems corresponds to working with the above set of equations which is rather nontrivial compared to our proposal.
A simple and direct method for generating travelling wave solutions for nonlinear equations
We name this the pKdV equation, and note that for a = p = 1 it reduces to the KdV equation while for a = ±2, p = 1/2, it leads to the two mKdV equations.
