To make it work you need three more.
Or I could eat the one that’s spare,
And then we’d match,
Which would be fair.
This next poem is pea inspired rather than being a response to the wonderful illustration. I got carried away.
Just One Pea.
Two peas? Three peas? Four?
I won't eat them, don't serve more.
Five peas! Six peas! Seven peas! Eight!
I don't want them on my plate.
Nine peas! Ten peas! Stop right there.
I won't eat them. It's not fair!
