I slumber to numbers. They sing me to sleep. One page of equations, I’m soon counting sheep. I doze to division and multiplication. The stacking of fractions can cause hibernation. Subtractions and factors will daze and deflate me, tranquilize, narcotize, soundly sedate me. But, oh, here we go with a 7 times 4, a 20 plus 12, and a 10 minus . . . snore!
