Anyone know any good piems?

Via scienceisbeauty:

π, an irrational number which gives us a rational beauty.

A curiosity via wikipedia: There are many ways to memorize π, including the use of “piems”, which are poems that represent π in a way such that the length of each word (in letters) represents a digit. Here is an example of a piem, originally devised by Sir James Jeans: How I want a drink, alcoholic of course, after the heavy lectures involving quantum mechanics. Notice how the first word has three letters, the second word has one, the third has four, the fourth has one, the fifth has five, and so on.
