Zero doesn’t mean ‘loser ‘ to me;
It doesn’t mean I’m weak.
Zero is the start of binary,
(Can you tell that I’m a geek?)
Zero means the digital world:
Maths and computers around me.
Zero is the strand of code
that links my lovers to me.
I’m a walking stereotype, I guess,
but the analogue world just doesn’t make sense.
Roman numerals are a waste of time;
The Arabic zero lets my love shine.
When my partners are countless kilometres from me,
I can touch them all though my PC.
I give thanks for the women who developed early code;
The Muslim scholars who made zero precious as gold.
Where would I be without that special digit?
Without the internet and those I’ve met within it?
Zero makes my world go round, I swear
That’s why this geek remembers nothing in all his prayers.
