## Pi-ku

Cadaeic.Round;

A mystery;

Pi.

The arithmetic:

Circumference by diameter;

divide.

But of what use is it?

A valid question!

The answer:

In calculation!

Circle's area: Pi r squared;

The sphere's volume: four thirds Pi r cubed;

Sphere's surface: four Pi r squared;

Cone's volume: one third Pi r squared h.

So you see

Pi is

Quite useful.

(But Pietry is not pretty.

Eh, nepenthes?)
