She gazes out the window.
"What's the answer to number one?
Could it be 15c
Or, maybe, 51?"

A squirrel runs along a branch
And scampers out of view.
She gazes at her maths paper;
"How do you do number two?"

Numbers three, four, five, six and seven
Pass with little toil
But, when she gets to number eight.
Her head begins to boil!

"What's the sum of a and b?
Does it equal c plus d?
No. Maybe it's just d plus e."
Oh, tedious exams.
