Word Prompt – Dividend

The ice cream man is not sort of mathematician

But with all those flavors, he’s a sort of magician

One might say that a few shared licks are a dividend

As a payment in kind when shared with a good friend

Though others may say that ice cream should not be divided

I am not absolutely sure that I’ve really decided

History shows that I’ve never really had any true satisfaction

When given less than I want regardless of the fraction

Whatever the case when it comes to ice cream you cannot be late

Not if you want the truest satisfaction in your payment date

If you wait too late, the value of the ice cream may become liquidated

Oh, if only, there was a way to keep this somehow refrigerated

Instead, we have to lick it up, right on the spot

As we stand here on the sidewalk, melting, because it’s sizzling hot
