He's teaching her arithmetic,
He said it was his mission,
he kissed her once,
Kissed her twice,
and said "now that's addition".
and as he added smack by smack
in silent satisfaction,
She sweetly gave the kisses back
and said "Now that's subtraction".

Then he kissed her and she kissed him,
Without an explanation,
They both smiled and said,
"That's multiplication"
Then dad appeared upon the scene,
and made a quick decision.
He kicked the kid three blocks away
and said,"That's long division".
