A Counting Song



Remember, remember,
let’s count and remember.

We’ve ONE sun in the sky
although there are more;
ONE moon is night’s eye
as we sleep on the floor.

TWO is the strangest prime
the rest are just odd;
and THREE is sublime-
it’s the fav’rite of God.

Remember, remember, 
let’s count and remember.

FIVE books, pillars, and wounds
in three religions;
to EIGHT we’re attuned
for breath, our oxygen.

THIRTEEN is unlucky,
though we don’t know why;
TWENTY-ONE can be
written as X X I.

Remember, remember, 
let’s count and remember.

We don’t like THIRTY-FOUR-
there’s nothing to say;
Ole FIFTY-FIVE’s score
was composed by Tom Waits.

EIGHTY-NINE comes before
ninety, but so what?
Now ONE-FORTY-FOUR
has made the final cut.

Remember, remember,
let’s count and remember.
