By Fran Abrams

It’s Pi Every Time

You need to be careful 
when talking about pi. 
There are many of us who think 

first of cherry and banana cream 
instead of the importance 
of the number 3.14159265. 

The circumference of a circle 
divided by its diameter is pi—
every time. 

Pick a circle, any circle, 
large or small, and pi 
stands ready to serve.
