FORTY-FOUR

A square is born with four equal sides.
So when four meets four like groom and
     bride
- in other words, when two squares
     collide -
forty-four looks on with pride.

If there's five funky hat-wearing cats
And each cat makes a grab for each hat
They could be there for days
'Cos there's FORTY-FOUR ways
They can each grab the wrong hat- that's stats
