zero is a number
one less than one
that makes it a number 
not negative one
zero is a number 
compleat in itself
zero is a goal
good for one's health

nothing is none
and empty is out
barren is imposible
yet silence can shout
gone is'nt absent
away is'nt naught
never implies zero
missing can be forgot

zero smoking, zero sex
zero taking chances on risky events
zero drinking, zero drugs
zero being responsible, zero falling in love
zero disease's, zero hurts
zero damaged reputations 
zero wounded hearts
maybe zero cancer, maybe zero arts
maybe zero errors, maybe zero plays
maybe zero hatred, maybe zero AIDS
zero negativity, zero enemies made

    a safe but dull world don't you think? sounds like an illuminati-controlled world to me, zero everything, shades of 1984 and brave new world (I realized what that book was really about when I realized he'd left the word 'order' off the end of it)

    I never thought of zero in this way . If everything was a zero we would live in a sheltered world. Nicely penned. love phyl
