The day's almost over, and this still needs a tap of the
scansion hammer. But I did get it out before midnight local time.

ttto: Do Your Ears Hang Low

Is it pi or tau?
Well, of course it's pi day now.
Why not pi forevermore,
As it has been heretofore?
Tau would complicate pi r square,
That is why we all should declare,
"Vote for pi not tau."

It's for the "Can you throw it o'er your shoulder" line. To my
ear your's comes up a syllable short. Of course, mine requires
stress on "r" whereas most people stress "squared". (And my next
line requires stress on the first syllable of "declare".)
