Rebellious Numbers

We’re writing Ottava Rima’s tonight at Frank’s request in the Dverse bar.  Ottava Rima is a poetic form, not a cutie from Spain:

Whole numbers in the ledger legion profess:

“We won’t be divided, don’t pick us apart,

Or we shall rebel, for we have no redress.

We’ll not be fractions, with a broken heart”!

The accountant replied, “I do protest,

You must show profit from the very start.

This will balance in your owner’s head

I right wrongs in red; you will be in cents instead
