It Figures #32

Bottom Line
Is not double-declining balance,
Is not double-entry accounting
Singing in perfect economic harmony,
Is not the double set of books
Double-dealing handshaking
With digits crossed.

Bottom line is not
The final answer
The clear conclusion
Setting your GPS navigation,
Locking in the coordinates for life

Bottom Line
Is a plumberís crack
Sweating beneath your sink.

Bottom line is a threadbare thong
Lost in four hundred pounds of gristle
And gum.

Bottom line is the dink dink
The double-u of two buns
Underlined with a wink.
Bottom line is what you live,
Not what you think.
