[Interesting] Cadaeic Cadenza

(from the Wikipedia article) Cadaeic Cadenza is a 1996 short story by Mike Keith.

When the number of letters in each word are written out, they form the first 3834 digits of pi.

The name of the piece itself is based on pi, as "Cadaeic" is the first 7 digits of pi, when rounded.

A Poem

        A Raven

Midnights so dreary, tired and weary,
    Silently pondering volumes extolling all by-now obsolete lore.
During my rather long nap - the weirdest tap!
    An ominous vibrating sound disturbing my chamber's antedoor.
        "This", I whispered quietly, "I ignore".
