Sun Forgot to Shine
(adding 9 + 9)

One day the sun,
Forgot to shine,

"Busy adding
9 plus 9!"
Screamed the sun,
"I don't have time,
When I'm adding,
Nine plus nine!!!!!!!!!"
It got dark,
It got cold,

Then a girl,
Said these words,
To the sun,
And they helped,
"Listen sun,
It's plain to me,
We need your light,
So we can see!"

She told the sun,
9 and 9,
Every time!
Sun said, Yes,
Yes, you're right,
And turned on,
Its sunny light!!!

9 + 9 = 18
