NINETY-ONE

In French you're quatre-vingt-onze.
That means four-twenty-eleven.
So if French people see you, 91,
they think you're
four times twenty plus eleven.
When I see you
I think of you as
ninety plus one.
A little bit more than something quite big.
Maybe, if I stop and think about it
I see you as
ten times nine and a little bit more.
If we had to change what to call you
I could put up with calling you
ten-nine-one...
...but four-twenty-eleven?
I don't think so.

"NINETY-ONE! It's no fun!" complained Mabel
"I can't find it in any times table.
It won't go by four,
Five or nine, I'm quite sure!"
Can you find some she's missed- are you able?
