Practical Application

18 Sep

He’s teaching her arithmetic,

He said it was his mission,

He kissed her once, he kissed her twice and said,

“Now that’s addition,”

And as he added smack by smack

In silent satisfaction,

She sweetly gave the kisses back and said,

“Now that’s subtraction.”


Then he kissed her, she kissed him,

Without an explanation,

And both together smiled and said,

“That’s multiplication,”

Then Dad appeared upon the scene and

made a quick decision.

He kicked that kid out the doorstep

and said, ” That’s division!”
