Octoproblem

A Math Poem

My teacher said to calculate
3.141 times 8.
I threw my hand up instantly
and so, of course, she called on me.
She asked me, "What's the answer, please?"
I'd figured this one out with ease.
I looked her squarely in the eye
and calmly answered, "Octopi!"
It took her half an hour to get it,
and then she gave me extra credit.
