The Beaver brought paper, portfolio, pens,
And ink in unfailing supplies:
While strange creepy creatures came out of their dens,
And watched them with wondering eyes.
As he wrote with a pen in each hand,
And explained all the while in a popular style
Which the Beaver could well understand.
A convenient number to state—
We add Seven, and Ten, and then multiply out
By One Thousand diminished by Eight.
