Ten digits

Used worldwide

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9

Ten digits we use

To describe the vastness of space

And the singular melon we bought at the grocery store

Ten digits we use,

On a scale of one to ten,

To communicate our emotions

And on a scale of zero to five,

To judge all things

Just ten digits,

With repetition

Create infinite possibilities for us to express ourselves

But turn ten digits to ten letters, can we do the same?

Ten digits allow mathematicians to write books with never ending pages

Yet 26 letters confines us to a singular million phrases
