Happy Pi Day.

Today we join the world in celebrating the famous numerical constant pi, also known as 3.14, but with a literary twist.

Ladies and gentlemen, riders and pedestrians, I present to you “A Piem as Inspiration for a DARTable St. Patrick’s Day”:










There you have it. Now, give it a try.
