The poem below is a π mnemonic constructed in a different way from those using Pilish. In this text the first 85 digits of π (3.14159265358979...) are encoded in the first letter of successive words, by taking each initial letter's value (A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.) modulo 10, or, equivalently, the last digit of the letter value. This is an easier constraint to work with than Pilish (even though it also encodes the digits at a density of one digit per word) so we decided to make it a bit harder. The final letter of successive words also encodes the first 85 digits of the number e (2.718281828459045...). For example, the first word in the poem is WILL, with the first letter W = 23 = 3 mod 10 giving the first digit of π and the last letter L = 12 = 2 mod 10 giving the first digit of e. The poem's title is, of course, a three-digit mnemonic of the same kind.
Cruel Unending Drama
Will keeping dogma alter evil, sir?
(Black, familiar evil - war, even:
"HOLY" its government-issued, musty label)
Civic hero, new pup, bureaucrat,
political doer commencing campaign
(having weak logic, generally),
Intellectual of top local renown,
religious, doddering king
Seeking comfort, I interview myself.
Questions, enigmas (always the enigmas!) rise, vexing;
tired senses gasp.
Nincompoop succeeds nincompoop,
Still voting, mumbling typical good-honest-king pap?
Forget barbaric history!
(Then, revelling steadily, ski round free-loving Romania.)
