Oh brilliant man from ancient times we look on you with wonder
No fancy machines no memory books yet you plotted without blunder
How could you achieve or even conceive the circle and it ratio
We bow to you as men will do from now to long ago
Your magic PI has steered the world from pyramids to race cars
Yet with a decimal so bizarre its places plot to distant stars
