Numbers ,

It’s a book in the Bible ,

about why and where tribes wandered.

Numbers, it’s a talent to excel in,

whether dollars or in time.

Numbers, can keep increasing

whether yours or mine.

Numbers, show me the numbers.

Numbers are rolling circles

on the hands of time.

Numbers can be depleted.

Numbers also justify the crime.

Numbers are you sure you’re ready

when your number’s up in line?

People are made numbers.

Certain factions try.

They’re the ones who stand and say,

“Well the numbers, they never lie.”

But the numbers often do.

Pythagoras could have told us,

numbers can exclude us,

numbers can be callous ,

with no beauty,

especially when untrue.
