Numbers by Al Jared

Have you ever considered
The importance of numbers
In our daily lives…
Like 98.6 degrees body temp
Or 6.9 on the Richter scale…
The magnitude of it all!
Perhaps, you’ve pondered
How talc and diamond
Shape the ends
Of Moh’s scale of hardness
From 1 to 10…
And how about Fibonacci’s sequence
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8…
Each the sum of the two before
That brilliant Florentine
Tries our imagination, and our will…
But simpler still
And a lot more fun
Is to count from 10
To 1
Lift-off!
