I hungered for a bit of food to eat,
A moist and sug'ry piece of pecan pie -
A giant slice of this delightful treat,
I ate enough an army to supply.
And when at last my belly was replete,
I groaned, and thought that I would surely die,
For though at first I thought it no great feat,
My stomach is much smaller than my eye.
And just how much confection did I eat?
To answer that you need a different pi!

This is really impressive. Shakespeare would be proud.
