Summing up the problem
A simple chore proves hit and miss
In adding up a numbers list.
I get the sum, then run it through
Again — and then a third time, too.
My aggravation you can see:
I get three sums — yet none agree!
So who’s to blame — the perpetrator —
The little plastic calculator?
The fault I must in shame confess…
My skills at math: a total mess.
