Just Jot It January: Family Arithmetic

First  there  was  me  then there  was you

We  united  and  that  made us  two

Growing  close  we  became one

Then  a knew life came along

We  became two  plus one.


Moving on and  we  soon had another one

Our total rising up  to four

A nice round  figure,  then along came one  more!

Our numbers added up to five

Our youngsters keeping us alive.


Five  was our sum  for a long while

Then number five  met number  six  and that made us all smile.

So there  we stayed  for a while. Not  same as before

Different  for  all then suddenly  we find  there is one more!


So  here  we are at  seven

All is good  and  seems like heaven.

Dark clouds on the horizon, why do they always loom.

Mistakes  made, harsh words cannot  be erased, causing gloom.

How can we stop division of  the seven.


Please  don’t  let these problems  multiply

To add back up is always worth a try

I don’t  want  to have to subtract  three

That is a total I never want  to see.
