My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!
And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!
Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!
And I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!
And I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head-
Too proud of me to speak!
I have commented several times and submitted, but it wont take. I can see how a younger child could reach this logic.
easy to point, for children of all ages to enjoy
It was hilarious but very good
Candice nuts fit I. Your mouth
It was funny but a teachable memory
Nice mathematical thinking for school age
Makes a good point
it was a funny poem
Great poem! I understand how money can be difficult for young children.
