One's (1's) and Zero's (0's)

A Poem by David george
"

"
in letters in numbers
speak two kind of language
one
half as much
but twice as good
and the other
twice as much, but half as elegant
in letters in numbers
expresses one kind of thing
in one kind of place
for one kind of reason
behind one kind of face
taking up one kind of space. . .

I can remember many years ago working with computer programmers, in the very early days of computers. They wrote there programmes in numbers and I would punch them out on to paper tape. Hadn't a clue what they meant but as a teenager I was so impressed. Letters I am much better with because I understand them more. I wish I had been good with numbers. That's where your little poem took me David, on a trip down memory lane.

Never been very good with numbers, letters I have more luck with.. It is true we speak in both, it is just not a language I am fluent in. Nice write.
