Mister Left and Miss Right

Mister Left sat down to work some math extraordinary.

He made a plan he’d use to solve; he’s really quite contrary!

His brain says take things step-by-step; that truly is his style.

He’ll use the rules and formulas to prove his way’s worthwhile.


Miss Right sat down to work the math; she took a different path.

She drew a picture, made a chart, put data in a graph.

Her brain says process all at once, don’t pick it all apart.

She follows hunches, no set plan, to prove she’s really smart.


Though Left and Right may disagree about whose way is best,

The answer’s most important; forget about the rest!

If Left and Right work side by side, you know, cooperate,

Their solutions won’t just be correct, they could be truly great!
