Happy Pi Day!

As you may have heard, Pi Day is now an official Federal holiday. I have therefore composed a short poem about this fine mathematical constant. Enjoy!

"I have news that I feel must be shared,"
Said that silly young baker named Baird.
"As a chef, I have found
That the best pies are round,
So ignore those who claim Πr²."
