I Am Bored With Math

I am bored with math.
Two plus two always equals four.
Why can't it equal an ice cream cone
Or a trip to the candy store?

Four plus four always equals eight-
Never a video game,
Or a Disneyland vacation.
No, the answer's e'er the same!

One times one always equals one.
Where's the fun in that?
I'd love to see the answer be
A brand new baseball bat!

    What a cute poem, Cherie! Ditto to your sentiments on math. It bored the heck out of me in school, but I scored higher in math than verbal on my SATs. ??? Try doing the math on that. LOL Love and blessings for a happy Easter, Carolyn
