"ARITHMETIC" by Carl Sandburg

"Arithmetic is where numbers fly like pigeons in and out of your head.

Arithmetic tells you how many you lose or win if you know how many you had before you lost or won.

Arithmetic is seven eleven all good children go to heaven-or five six bundle of sticks.

Arithmetic is numbers you squeeze from your head to your hand to your pencil to your paper till you get the answer.

Arithmetic is where the answer is right and everything is nice and you can look out the window and see the blue sky....or the answer is wrong and you have to start all over and try again and see how it comes out this time."

Wow, I couldn't have said it better myself. Guess who is about to the end of their mathematical rope...
