Pi

Here’s a fun little poem I came up with a few years ago when my nephews and nieces were learning the Greek alphabet and pronouncing one of the letters differently than I learned it. It is very common. I guess as a math major in college and a theology major in seminary, I’ve been well ingrained with both. I’ve never bothered to write it down until now.

In math I learned, “It’s a number called ‘pie’.”
But in Bible they said, “It’s a letter called ‘pea’.”
I was so confused; but now I know why:
Those funny symbols are all Greek to me.

I hope somebody gets a laugh out of it.
