When number 8 fell down,
Numbers 6 and 7 did frown,
It made number 5 cry and from his own tears he nearly drown.
Number 4 did implore,
Number 3 to come and see!
Number 2 said, 8 is surely through!
And didn’t know what any other numbers could do!
But number 1 quietly said, number 8 is not nearly done
We just need to come together added as a sum.
All of the numbers soon agreed that this “adding” was good indeed,
And numbers 3 and 4 became 7 with speed.
Number 13 was quickly combined,
From numbers 2, 6 and 5.
Numbers 7 and 13 joined another 7 and 1,
And all the numbers wiggled and laughed and said this adding, is really quite fun!
A grand 28 they became after all their forces combined,
There mission was clear, to get number 8 up and off of his side!
Number 28 pulled and pushed hoping this situation they could fix,
And just then number 8 came flying up and down with a crash and 28 became number 36!
