Double Negative

poetry

I’ll be a millionaire, I tell you!
Filthy freakin’ rich, it’s true.

I can’t believe it,
But here’s the secret
And don’t tell a soul!

I owed Johnny $10 bucks
And Derek $10 more

So using what I learned
In school about math

I just multiplied the
Negative $10 bucks
I hadn’t paid that
Schmuck Johnny

By the $10 bucks
I had owed my
Old buddy Derek

And check this out:
I have a $100 bucks!

I’ll be swimming in cash soon.
Gosh I love math!
