Numb Ers

May 29, 2020

Numbers

Are coming at us

From every direction

Big ones

Small ones

Percentages

Fractions

Statistics

Comparisons

Dollar signs leading

Decimal trailing

Accurate

Misleading

Estimated

Inflated

Commas defining

Colons for timing

Increasing

Decreasing

Slanted

Skewed

Reviewed

In columns

And ledgers

Rated and

Deflated

Marginalized

Never capitalized

In such a bombardment

For it is a sine

I am becoming numb

To numbers

That are

Multiplied to keep

Us divided

And still there are only

Ten of them

Good thing

There are not any more

.

 

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”
