A few days ago on dVerse, we were encouraged to write a poem where each line had words, syllables, or metrical feet corresponding to numbers in a numerical sequence. I eventually thought of the mathematical constant known as “pi”. I wasn’t sure if this would count as a numerical sequence per se, so I decided to save this poem for open link night. Each line in this poem corresponds to digits in pi up to 23 decimal places (3.14159265358979323846264). Of course, a poem based on pi would have to be about pie. Hope you enjoy!
I like pie
It is simply wonderful
My favourite is probably rhubarb
But I will still gladly eat almost any flavour
Some go well with ice cream
Such as chocolate or apple
Some do not
Take lemon merangue for example
Any meal is better with pie for dessert
Of course pie is not necessarily just for dessert
Shepherd’s pie makes for a great meal
Potatoes, ground beef and vegetables baked in a crust
Although usually round,
They are square
But have they ever cut squares into wedges?
But whatever their shape
Pies are really good to eat.
Like my insatiable love of pie
Could likely last forever.
