In Humble Gratitude

Litotes! Litotes!
Sounds like a disease.
What does it mean?
Howard, tell us,

So you refuse?
Are you being obtuse?
“Look it up, you say?”
Okay, bub,
I just may!

Now all becomes clear.

When I used to hear
“I could care less”
I must confess
That in distress
I thought it certainly did seem
To be opposite of what
It intended to mean.

But now, enlightened,
I, like you,
Am erudite, too.

Thank you, Howard!
