Pie Are Round
Pappy asked his son one day,
“What are they learnin’ you at college?”
“I know that ‘pi r squared’
From my math class!!!”
He asserted, though usually boasting rare.
“Pie are square?”
Pappy didn’t like the sound.
“I ain’t sending you to college no more.
Everyone knows that
Pie are round!”
