Lists For Dummies - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Accountants have their lists of course.
They flash them everywhere they go,
put names that pay or want to know
what all these figures mean for them.
I've borrowed his long list for now,
erased his names and added mine
all those will soon approach the bench
and own up what they did, those swine.
If you would like to be thus added
it is no trouble, none at all,
just make a comment and sit back
we will relieve you of excess
or even basics, don't you worry,
meanwhile relax and watch this space.
