Postive and Negative Integers

negatives are on the left

 A tiny, little integer,
Lost on the number line,
Couldn’t find her way back home,
No matter where she climbed…
She was number,
And searching for her place,
On the massive number line,
She had to find home base…
She pestered positive,
Integer 6,
To tell her where to start,
He told her 0,
Knew the answer,
He was really smart…
Negative 3,
Asked the zero,
Sitting in the middle,
He gave an answer,
To the 3,
That solved her little riddle…
He told her to the right,
right arrow
Is where the positives play,
And negatives numbers,
Are on the left,
left arrow
Each and every day…
