Piphilology - communal

....or the creation and use of mnemonic techniques to remember a span of digits of the mathematical constant Pi.

The most common mnemonic technique is to memorise a sentence in which the number of letters in each word in turn is equal to the corresponding digit of Pi.
e.g.:
How I wish I could enumerate pi easily, since all these bullshit mnemonics prevent recalling any of pi's sequence more simply.

So let's do one of our own - Poetry? Prose? a mixture?

Let a word I utter selfishly be


[SIDEBAR: Kate Bush wrote a song about pi for her new album Aerial, in which she actually sings the value... to quite a few decimal places. I'm not sure how useful it would be as a mnemonic aid, however. The typically quirky melodic structure ain't perzackly Schoolhouse Rock, ya nome sane? Anyhow, I recommend the album, to those who are into that sort of thing.]
