That Math Problem

Some fifth graders want to give up / too soon
Say it’s impossible / to solve

But I’ve never given them a problem
That can’t be solved

From time to time / some of the problems
Have more than one solution

Those are the most fun
The opposite of impossible

But that still misses the point
The fun is not in the solution

It’s in the solving
