And then there were Five

I counted them
one,
two,
three,
four,
five,
and asked where's the six.
But
they told me
there was
only five
all
along.
Are you sure?
I asked.
They nod
and agree
unanimously,
There are only five,
always have been,
and always will be.
But I knew
there was one more
deep within
the recesses of
their belly
since one of them
burped.
