Fingers and Toes

Attached to appendages

Of ten little boys

Ornery little guys

Devious and sly

Living at Number 10

Decimal Street

Running about

With ten times the mischief

One tenth here

And two tenths there

Torturing their teacher

She’s pulling out her hair

All with an exponential flair

Ten little bits of pain

In the neck and other planes

And in the evening

Back home to #10 again

Sound asleep in their beds

Divided by 2 sleeping head to head

Dreaming ten sweet dreams

Of monstrous plans

And tomorrow’s playful schemes
