The Day 1 + 1 = 3

Something weird happened,
This morning at 9,
This day would be strange,
It wouldn't be fine...
Went to the kitchen,
I turned white like a ghost...
2 pieces,

3 slices were there,
That's just what I said...

I put on my shoes,

3 tires,
My mind was kaput!!!
3 eyes,

To match my
3 ears,
Little brother was
3,
2 years...
Then I just realized,
What counted to
2,
Now counted to
3...
"No way!" said teacher,
My mom, and Aunt Bett,
2 ones,
See what you get!!!"
2 ones,
And what could I do?
The truth in plain sight,
Their sum was just
2...
I checked, and I checked,
Went over my work,
Each time I got
3,
And
3 was beserk!!!...
I went to the doc,
And to the police,

Called teachers in France,
In spain, and in Greece,
They told me
2 ones,
Are equal to
2,
3,
Just what could I do?
I pulled at my hair,
Tears filled my eyes,
Without a surprise!!!
Then in the mirror,
Came the solution,
My eyes were all blurred,
Like a sky with pollution!
I ran for my glasses,
That lay by my bed,

Grabbed them as fast,
As a hungry shark's fed!!!
I wrote down the numbers,
That gave me such trouble,
And then I felt good,
1 + 1 is one doubled...
2,
You dice it and slice it,
The lesson I learned?
When it's time to go add,
I should put on my glasses,
