The Fundamentals

Two times ten
calls the teacher
20 comes the answer.

The arithmetical tables
from two to sixteen
practised in earnest.

A routine in the school
where recitations of tables,
spelling tests carried significance.

Trained with an eye on perfection
In school, I gained mastery
and never go wrong in either.

The basics were dinned
into the little heads
they stay till one lives.
