2 terrified twins, tweeted on twitter,

We’re trapped on the top of a tree!

Another 2 twins climbed quickly to help them,

Now there was one more than 3!

2 twins at the bottom wanted to help,

And climbed to the tree-top so high,

Now how many twins were stuck in the tree?

Hanging so close to the sky?

Then 2 older twins, saw the 6 twins,

Stuck in the branches like fruits,

And helped those twins down,

One at a time,

They led them right down to the roots!

How many twins were safe at the bottom,

What was the total amount?

6 twins from the top and a pair that had saved them,

Make 4 pairs of twins we should count…

Whenever I’m counting things like 2 twins,

What is the math that I use?

If things come in pairs like twins on a tree,

I’ll choose to use counting by 2’s…
