Numbers make the world, no smiles or batted eyes here numbers make the world, no sticky-sweet fingers or waving palms numbers rule without qualms Gross domestic products and tonnage of staples on actuarial tables PSI and APY ratioed percentages leveraged capitals daily numbers of sales calls - numbers are to do 'n' all Numbers make the world, no full moon in lapis sky no fresh-picked basil on peckish plate no dreaming lovers to salivate only numbers of bushels per acre no smokey-sweet of roasted ears It's numbers that count no blessings of sermon on the mount for the numbers shall inherit by long or short division, able to sway, today's decision about what's important, what life is for it's all about a number, nothing more, so don't worry 'bout what's next in store 'cause you can't count on it anymore - it's days are numbered like counting sheep, now close your eyes, 'n' get some REM sleep dreaming now of days, away ago, when it wasn't so - that numbers made the world © Goode Guy 2013-04-01
