A third

of my homework is

Dad says I should have no problems with


of my math homework.


Dad says fractions are easy.


Dad says if I used


of the time

I spend staring at my math book

actually    working    problems

I'd score in the

top fifth

of my class.


What Dad doesn't know is

half my brain

doesn't understand fractions.


When it comes to fractions

Dad and I need

the lowest common denominator.
