Number Systems

I use numbers
and a yes/no system to entertain myself
it is not nice
although I’m not really looking for approval
*
Ones to fours need not apply
a five will need a visa
sixes have the right to work
sevens have residency
eights, nines and tens highly skilled
says penis at the border
*
It’s retarded,
leading nowhere, it does a lot more harm than good.
Does it really?
My imagination is no concern of yours
