All That Effort for Nothing
I encountered a word this morning.
I have no idea what it means.
It’s like one of those
scratch-my-head double negatives,
always leaves me thinking, Huh?
And the same goes for
adding up negative numbers.
Even worse, subtracting them.
Negatives, shouldn’t be allowed,
and double negatives, they’re
a virus. A kind of madness.
They take on a life of their own,
pretending to be all too human.
Minus one minus minus one equals
all that effort for nothing.
