You should meet my dog,
Certainly, always, the main attraction,
Not named add or multiply,
Call her those, and she may cry!
She has 3 ears, and 2 noses,
Has 3 eyes, 21 ‘toeses’
Has 5 legs, 2 tails too,
Subtraction dog, what did she do?
Took away, one of each,
At least the things,
Within her reach…
Now Subtraction looks so fine,
2 eyes, 2 ears, just like mine…
Here’s your treat,
Hold it with your 5 dog feet…
