I am poor in maths.
Still poorer in memory.
My teacher fore warned: Be Careful.
A change of sign you miss somewhere
Would, however much you try, leads nowhere.
I added riches,
multiplied my tribe,
divided my parents
subtracted my kin.
I wasn’t getting answers to my sums
There weren’t agreeable remainders
The products were getting smaller and smaller
and the differences started growing larger and larger.
I broke my head over the problems
What the hell? Where I went wrong?
At last, my teacher flashed in my memory,
and said, undo what you did, you’ll be happy.
