Hare was sad
and he was mad
to lose the race
to Tortoise's slow pace
a rematch he demanded
and Tortoise suggested
a hopping race
at a brisk pace
it will be nice
to roll two dice
and hop a hop
each time our sum is up
12 chose Hare
with a confident flair
it's the biggest sum
with more ways to win
Tortoise picked 7
not 1 or 11
and they rolled the dice
to start the race
Tortoise picked 7
not 1 or 11
and they rolled the dice
to start the race
rolling two dice seems random
but they work in tandem
to make a neat pattern
that's easy to learn
they discovered
good thinking
and not good luck
wins the hopping race
what about you Mom
what would you do
would you pick 12
or 1 or 7? 
it would assist
to make a list
of all the ways
to make each sum
or a probability test
a number contest
to see which sum
might win the race
what about you Mom
what would you do
would you pick 12
or 1 or 7?
rolling two dice seems random
but they work in tandem
to make a neat pattern
that's easy to learn
you'll discover
good thinking
and not good luck
wins the hopping race
thanks for sharing son
this is lots of fun
lot's of creativity
with a math story
I made a list
I could not resist
I used a grid
the outcomes make a pyramid
rolling two dice seems random
but they work in tandem
to make a neat pattern
that's easy to learn
I've discovered
good thinking
and not good luck
wins the hopping race
