Oh look you win there at your bin. But we have to make sure you know such easy math at your show. Have to be smarter than a second grader at your sea. Who cares if they are pointless and easy.

Two plus two,

What comes due?

Take away three,

You following me?

Times that by ten.

Do you need a pen?

Minus zero from it.

Don't have a fit.

What number strikes a pose?

Use your fingers and toes.

Now times it by eight.

Can you take the bait?

Take away five.

Will you get out alive?

This is so tough.

Have you got the stuff?

Add another eight.

Don't give me hate.

You need a test.

To prove you are the best.

Times that by two.

Easy enough for you.

You need a calculator you say?

My, you are taking all day.

Just take away six.

Like lottery picks.

Six minus that,

Is what at your mat?

You still don't know?

Well away we go.

Divide that by eighty.

That alright by you, matey?

It's a pirate's life for me.

Out on the sea.

Take away one,

And now you are done.

Do you get the prize,

And prove you are wise?

Or will we draw again.

Hope there was enough ink in your pen.

The cat does not know what the point in these are. But it is getting pretty bad near and far when people can't do such things in their head. How do they even get out of bed? It's not like it is a big number mass. Sure beats my one little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

Now it is #36

DeleteFeeling a little meek!

Hank

Meek you say

DeleteWith so many at my bay

Great post!

DeleteYippeeee

DeleteFor me

Numbers and maths

ReplyDeleteGo right to the head

Add or

Subtrect

Give them all the dread!

Hank

They can cause dread

DeleteNightmares for some in bed

Very cleverly written Pat. Great to read.

ReplyDeleteYvonne.

I like being clever

DeleteSuch a fun endeavor

Happy Easter Pat for you and the cat:)

ReplyDeleteSame to you

DeleteTo all at your zoo

Wishing you and the cat a Happy Easter at your mat

ReplyDeleteI can do the math, as I follow the number path

experience spring, let your heart sing...

Well you can let your heart sing

DeleteWhen you have a fling

See, two in one

Happy easter under your sun

calculators are the way to go

ReplyDeletemachine powered though blows

and we just get less cognitive dev

and our brains turn to shi---

whoops, almost got crass

but when you lose the ability to think

its hard to tell you head from your as---

haha look at you go

DeleteWith the crass show

Fun to see

And yeah sh-- and @$$ become one in the same, sadly

I get them every time

ReplyDeleteThey are easy as can be

DeleteFor those who can add 2 plus 2 at their sea

They act like they can trick but they are pretty easy. Kind of pointless

ReplyDeleteKind of pointless in the end

DeleteBut they are still a trend

The days of math proficiency are surely numbered!

ReplyDeleteYeah away they go

DeleteAs calculators show

Ugh! Math! Once we get past elebenty seven it confuses us so!

ReplyDeletehaha well at least you get that far

DeleteThere at your sand bar

Have a great Easter Pat.. We have going to have beautiful day here in Pennsylvania.

ReplyDeleteThe sun is shining here too

DeleteBut not very warm at our zoo

Ohhh, this must be a book, go look. I love this one the most, I will boast.

ReplyDeleteHave a wonderful Sunday. Happy Easter!

A math book you say

Deletehaha that would be interesting to do at my bay

Happy Easter Pat

ReplyDeleteand to the cat.

Same to all

DeleteAt your hall

No numbers on Sunday Pat, my brain is all feathers today ~ Happy Easter to you ~

ReplyDeletehaha brain is full of fluff

DeleteAs up it goes in a puff

I'm just here to read your post for the day, and wish you a Happy Easter.

ReplyDeleteA read and a cheer

DeleteWorks for my rhyming rear

Happy Easter!

ReplyDeleteSame to you

DeleteAnd all at your zoo

Well that was a good one. We almost got it but got lost along the way. A very Happy Easter to you. The donks send a special Hee Haw to ya.

ReplyDeletehaha thanks the donks for that

DeleteAt least you almost kept up with the cat

Calculators I rarely use

ReplyDeleteFeel same way about the booze

Learning core math would be a bore

Trying to make the numbers soar

The problem came to number one

Win the toaster, have some fun

Hope you day is bright and sunny

Go the mile for being funny

Win a toaster you say

DeletePfft that is a let down at my bay

For fucks sake Cat, I'm not going to do maths today, it's Easter. I heard you Canadians celebrate by sucking the sap straight out of the maple trees. And then you all dress up like Mounties and ride around on horses. And is it true that one unlucky child from each village is chosen to clean up all the horse shit from the streets at the end of the day?

ReplyDeleteGotta go Cat, I'm fixing Canadian Bacon for breakfast!

Wow, you are in the know

DeleteWe can't have that at your show

It is a secret I hear

So for your cheer

The horse shit collected

Won't be neglected

It will be shipped to you

And pffft canadian bacon is an american invention that came due

Ya, I knew it was true :)

DeleteIn the know

DeleteBad for you at your show

I'm reminded of an SNL skit where Chevy Chase is portraying a presidential candidate at a debate where he's given a long question dealing with taxes and economy. He stares deadpan into the camera and says, "It was my understanding ...that there would be no math during the debates."

ReplyDeletelol math can sure bring on wrath

DeleteLeaving one in a stuper bath

Second grade math I can do,

ReplyDeleteBut when my 4th grader needs help, my brain goes shoo.

This common core stuff is for the birds.

Whoever came up with it can choke on some turds.

Happy Easter to you Pat!

haha all the advanced crap

DeleteNever use anyway across many a map

I got lost at the fingers and toes/strike a pose part. Oh, well. Happy Joyous Easter, Pat.

ReplyDeleteKept up for a while

DeleteWith my math mile

And the answer is...!

ReplyDeleteHappy Easter, Pat!

That works too

DeleteAt my zoo

Totally agree to work out the problem in one's head

ReplyDeletebut lately more and more don't do that and instead

turn to a calculator or such

that doesn't help them to learn much!

betty

Nope, just hit a button or three

DeleteThen learn nothing at their sea

It's easy for you to do

ReplyDeletebeing an accounting major, too

Doesn't come naturally to me

but I do try at my sea.

I have found that using a calculator

makes you forget

and the brain cells are hit or miss.

haha.

Yeah the more buttons you hit

DeleteThe less you remember it

I forgot most of the major stuff

But can still do this fluff

Two plus two

ReplyDeletenot always come due...

they lost on the road

found new code

so add them you need

to create super feed

then they come

attracted by charm...

Happy Easter Sunday, Pat/cat !

A little charm

DeleteArm and arm

Two by two

At each zoo

I can give answer in decimals but why would anyone give math question on Easter day?

ReplyDeleteDid bunnies lay egg in your home?

haha it was scheduled months ago

DeleteEaster day I did last year at my show

Since we are talking math on Easter, I say as long as you end up with a positive gain in the egg and candy department, you have the correct answer...

ReplyDeletehaha that is a good way to look at it

DeleteAs more candy is sure a hit

I was able to follow right along

ReplyDeleteAnd me who was told I didn't know math from a song

It pays to keep your brain working

From the machines I'll be shirking

Yeah have to keep the brain going

DeleteOr a blank space will be showing

I got so caught up in the rhyme

ReplyDeleteI almost didn't take the time

To wish you an Easter sublime

haha that is fine

DeleteRhyme works for the feline

Nitey Nite Cat :0)

ReplyDeleteSleeping away

DeleteThen at my bay

I don't care for maff

ReplyDeleteSo I will take my baff

Wif my one and only tongue

Till the bell has rung

Then I'll head to hist'ry

Which is really such a myst'ry

After that is lunch

A class I love a bunch!

haha skipped recess though

DeleteToo busy licking at your show

How fun it would've been if I was ever a student in a math class taught in rhyme. =)

ReplyDeletehaha that could sure work

DeleteIn the brain it would then lurk

ReplyDeleteWhenever I want to strike a poseI need a calculator to pull it off.Geez such a bad blue

DeleteNo wonder grumpy is always you

I hope you have a kids' book or a series of books.

ReplyDeleteJust look above

DeleteAs they fly about like a dove
