Double Your Money - Poem by Linda Bella Wassermeister
Would you like to spend fifty dollars
and get back a hundred?
I'll tell you how you can.
First of all, you have to live in
the United States of America.
Only U. S. poets are eligible
to win the cash prize. Kim Barney
has a contest with a one hundred
dollar cash prize, and I know
the answer! It is his September 2018
contest, and it has never been solved!
I would turn in my answer, but I
can't get the money for it, because
I am living in Canada. I already
solved his May 2017 contest, which
had gone unsolved for two years plus,
and all I got was the "GLORY". I
already have more glory than I can spend.
So, here's what you do: just send me
your credit card number, and I will make
a fifty-dollar purchase or withdrawal
on your card, then I will tell you the
answer to his contest, and you can
collect the one hundred dollars!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
If you would fall for that, you would
fall for anything! Never give out
your credit card number like that.
The person who gets your number
could run up thousands of dollars
worth of charges. Instead, just mail
me the fifty dollars in cash. Hah!
Seriously, though, I really have
figured out the answer to his contest.
I will wait a bit longer to give you
more time before I win more glory.
