Eight Was Enough

Written by: David Fisher

TV’s Eight was Enough, so was nine too many?
And that nine from a dime, equals one penny.
We look forward to eighteen, so we can vote.
But at half that age, eighteen’s so far remote.
Some may want to chop down snooty twenty-seven;
Just divide by three, or take two from eleven.
Or better yet, add that same two onto seven.
Ah, Jee’s-Louise, these mumble-jumbling, topsy-turvy lines
All pale to the perfection of pure number nine!
