Number Man (poem by me)

His life is defined by the…
…salary he will earn,
…bills he must collect,
…yield on his stock,
…minimum he will accept,
…debt owed to him,
…deduction he can get,
…sale priced just right,
…count of his assets.

Remember, Number Man, to kiss
your children good night.
Remember, Number Man, the Lord
has numbered your days.

“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.”—Psalm 90:12
