Numbers - Poem by Paul Warren
What would we do without numbers
You couldn't count and know what you have
And the great mathematicians would not work
When I was studying Aboriginal culture
There was only one language with a count
I have thought that Aboriginals were disadvantaged
When trading with others
And when wondering what the Romans have done for us
It's not Roman numerals in the confusion they are
The Arabs with their numerals were the best
With them we have succeeded without jest.
