My Math Brain Fell Apart

My math brain fell apart again

and now I can’t be sure,

whether nine is more than ten

‘cause nine is spelled with four,

and ten is spelled with three,

and three is spelled with five,

and five is spelled with four again,

which shows how I arrive

at thinking nine’s the same as five,

and ten’s the same as two,

and one’s the same as six.

Now I don’t know what to do.

 

I’m out of tape and staples

and I used up all the glue.

My math brain fell apart again,

and so I’ve come to you.

—M.M.
