ANSWER:

The puzzler tried to take the test;

Intriguing rhymes he wished to best.

But "fifty and ten dozens twenty"

Made his headache pound aplenty.

When he finally found some leisure,

He took to task this witty treasure.

"The product of the age must be

Twenty-four hundred fifty!"

Knowing that, he took its primes,

Permuted them as many times

As needed, til he found amounts

Equal to, by all accounts,

Twice the verger's age, so that

He would have that next day's spat.

The reason for the lad's confusion

Was due to multiple solution!

Hence he needed one more clue

To give the answer back to you!

Since only one could fit the bill,

And then confirm the priest's age still,

The eldest age of each solution

By one could differ, with no coercion.

Else, that last clue's revelation

Would not have brought information!

With two, two, five, seven, and seven,

Construct three ages, another set of seven.

Two sets of three yield sixty-four,

Examine them, yet one time more.

The eldest age of each would be

Forty-nine, and then, fifty!
