Correcting a persistent mistake from the literature, we prove that PP, the composition of the covariant powerset monad P with itself, does not admit any monad structure. The same applies to the n-fold composition of P for any n > 1. As a consequence, P does not have any distributive law over itself, and it motivates a search for sufficient conditions for a monad to have a distributive law over P.
