#### Number crunching

‘Tis a favorite project of mine

A new value of *pi* to assign.

I would fix it at 3

For it’s simpler, you see,

Than 3.14159…

If inside a circle a line

Hits the center and goes spine to spine

And the line’s length is *d*

the circumference will be

*d* times 3.14159…

If (1+ *x*) (real close to 1)

Is raised to the power of 1

Over *x*, you will find

Here’s the value defined:

2.718281…

In arctic and tropical climes,

The integers, addition, and times,

Taken (mod *p*) will yield

A full finite field,

As *p* ranges over the primes.

If *n* in a Taylor series

Goes 2 to 11 by threes

For *n* = 1

Convergence is done

‘Twixt 0 and 2, I believe.
