Need Pencil And Paper

The accountant said, you need pencil and paper
For calculations reaching more then three digits.
Could do it in your head
But errors may occur,
So watch the numbers.
Perhaps a calculator would do the trick
But why rely on a device
We can do ourselves. It’s easy math.
Scratch out numbers, add them together
Get something new.
Another set multiply, check again is it right?
Numbers running through pages and pages.
Here we need to subtract
This item we bought last month;
Hanging on a wall watching
As we walk through the calculations.
Making sure books are right
No room for error
Tax day will be coming soon.
We should be prepare with correct figures.
Hopefully would be enough
To keep in the black again for another year.
