You should meet my dog,

Subtraction,

Certainly, the main attraction,

Not named Minus, not today,

Never called Take-Away,

Has 2 snouts,

Has 3 ears,

Has 3 eyes filled with tears,

Has 5 legs,

2 tails too,

Subtraction dog, what did he do?

Took away one of each,

At least the things,

Within his reach…

Now my doggie looks real fine,

2 eyes, 2 ears, just like mine…

Subtraction sit!

Here’s your treat,

Hold them with your 5 dog feet…
