Late last year,

During winter vacation,

Dad got us our dog,

Multiplication…

Multiplication’s a good dog,

But often brings trouble,

Like the day I woke up,

And noticed he’d doubled…

Two dogs were there,

Double the fun!

I had a big grin…

That was 2 dogs X 1…

Two dogs were cool,

But what about more?

The next day I woke up,

And saw there were 4!

4 dogs were a lot,

But the fun was still great,

Until the next morning,

When I saw there were 8!

Eight dogs for walking,

Was one of my fears,

That’s 32 legs,

And 16 dog ears!!!

But now I know 8,

Was a small complication,

Compared to,

16 X 1 dog,

Multiplication!

That’s 64 paws,

And 16 long tails,

32 eyes,

256 toe nails!!!

Having so many dogs,

Has been a wild-fun ride,

But it’s time Multiplication,

Learns to divide!
