When Two And Two Make Five

 

When I was much younger

I learned how to divide,

To add, subtract and multiply

They also did provide.

So why is it so frequent

When I’m working to survive

That no matter how I look at it

Two and two make five.

 

Making sense of behaviour,

Of what someone might say,

There’s a hidden element

That makes me lose my way.

It might just be an expression

Or a word that has been said

But my ability to work things out

Seems to leave my head.

 

That invisible thing that’s factored in

Leads me to confusion,

It might not be really there

But it still makes an intrusion.

So when two and two make five

Let me add it up some more,

That intruder will vacate my head

Then two and two make four.
