Journals dedicated towards work exploring the development of toy systems of axioms?
Might I suggest the Journal Of Your Favorite Axioms Regarding True Stuff. :)

Local Langlands for $GL(2,\mathbf{C})$ and reducible principal series
That one should work too, with U the (say) uppertriangular unipotent radical. It's equivalent, I think after substitution, to the one I wrote down with the lowertriangular unipotent radical. The important thing is to use whatever unipotent radical is opposite of the one used for parabolic induction in $I(\chi_1, \chi_2)$.

Homology of compact symmetric spaces
Have you checked in a book like Joe Wolf's "Spaces of Constant Curvature"

Significant edit, after comments.

Hmmm  I guess the ncat lab says CGWH is Cartesian closed but not locally Cartesian closed. Well, I'll leave the answer as a warning to others.

Mathematical research published in the form of poems
"The English examples ("The Kiss Precise" etc.) are clearly poems. I hope people won't start thinking that scanned Chinese examples are similar to those by any stretch of the imagination. I'm sure you've looked at things like the Joseph Needham, and maybe it would help to bring in sources that are more scholarly than wikipedia."

Mathematical research published in the form of poems
"Many of Confucius' aphorisms and sayings sound like this, but no one would call those poetry. Regulated prose is a dominant characteristic of ancient Chinese writing and found throughout the development of the essay form in Chinese, and it is very wrong to call it "poetry" (because the Chinese do have poetry qua poetry), and very wrong to claim that it is specific to mathematical treatises..."

Mathematical research published in the form of poems
"...I'd say that the additional example from Sun Zi is "regulated prose"; that is to say, it is "high" literary Chinese written with attention to parallelism, tonality, parts of speech, and other aesthetic conventions that one also finds in poetry. Prose written this way is considered elegant and sophisticated. The fact that Sun Zi's prose is regulated (using a fixed number of characters for each line, making the lines rhyme where possible but following no particular pattern of rhymes) makes the text easier to read (and remember) for the ancient reader, and the author seem more learned...

Mathematical research published in the form of poems
"Happy New Year! Well the post is fascinating, but completely wrong. The first two examples (the first two pictures) are actually the same page of the same book (the Nine Chapters)it's just that one is a more modern facsimile of the manuscriptI am not sure why the person couldn't supply more examples if he wanted to claim that "almost all of Chinese math is poetry"? But the examples they gave (including the "additional" ones in the responses) are not poetry...

I think this answer is just false. Neither the Nine Chapters nor the Suan Shu Shu ("Book on Numbers and Computation") are written as poems. If you want to look towards India, however, you'll find much better examples.

Is there a 01 law for the theory of groups?
@Michael, I think the more typical way to count isomorphism classes is to weight each class by the reciprocal of the cardinality of its automorphism group. So, each cyclic group of order $N$ would be weighted by $1 / \phi(N)$, for example.
