The Chair Problem

Joey woke up in the morning,
Where it seemed that a problem was forming
He rolled out of bed,
Started using his head
And thought, “What should I eat?”
He dressed and went downstairs,
Where it seemed there weren’t any chairs
There were four people that lived in the house,
If you didn’t include his pet mouse.
They needed six chairs,
Four plus two spares
The next day they went to the store,
Where they then bought six more
Then Joey said with a smile,
“I can do math!”
