Numbed by Numbers

Zero to nine, just 10 digits

How they have changed our lives!

But so many numbers to remember

One forgets, the more one strives

A number in every password

At least four in every PIN

Stored away somewhere in memory

For writing them down is a sin

Numbers on every ID

And so many on each card

Intended to make life easy

Instead making it so hard

I fear waking up someday

From an uneasy slumber

Looking in the mirror to see

Not my face but just a number
