WHAT’S ALL THIS FUSS ABOUT TEN?
TEN, you say, is currently the subject of our poem?
TEN, a digit thing about which to write a tome.
TEN, I calculate as my number of fingers and toes.
TEN other things I’ll find, since you’re not counting those.
TEN of this and TEN of that, would anyone believe,
TEN is just the numeral I have up my sleeve?
TEN, that curious number – I think I get the gist.
TEN words in every line? Well okay, if you insist.
TEN lines, of course, that’s how many we should write!
TEN words in TEN lines – did I get that right?
