he's teaching her arithmatic
he said it was his mission
he kissed her once, he 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, she kissed him
without an explination
and both together smiled and said
then dad appeared upon the scene
and made a quick decision
he kicked that kid three blocks away
and said "that's long division."
