Nickels
(how many in a quarter?)

The number of nickels,
A
quarter contains,
Is something I cannot decide…
I don’t count by
tens,
Or
sevens, or ones,
A
nickel,
It counts up by
fives!
5 then 10,
15 then 20,

But
20 is not quite enough,
1 more,

That's
25,
A
quarter with edges so rough!

There are 5 nickels in a quarter!!!!!

 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 25
