No Train stops at Pi....

A circle fell in love
With a square.
They paired and created
A triangle with rounded corners.
A trapezoid fell
From a great height
Bending one of its sides.
It hitchhiked the country
As the only five-sided quadrilateral
In recorded history.
Two parallel lines
Had a grand passion
But could only meet
At the farthest horizon of time.
Even then,
It was illusory.
A crooked line found
A short cut
And got from one point
To the other
Before the straight line,
Breaking the rules of shapes
And achieving short-lived fame.
How sad it was
When it failed
To find its way back.
