I can see you working hard at writing this one:

"We are the ratio of the Circumference to the Diameter"
"We are C over D"
"We are the Pi"
"Pi in your Eye"

Squaresville, Daddy-O.

Math? Hah!

Not bad.
Perhaps:
The ambassador from Pi was impossible to negotiate with, being fully irrational.
She won anyway. She was rounded well.


Or maybe the standard "well rounded". Gonna have to focus-group that one. :)

Architects are cake people. However I can think of an exception:
That deluxe apartment in the sky -
Movin on up,
To the east side.
We finally got a piece of the pi.

You do go in circles, but you never retread the same ground twice...
