What happens when we lose count?

*The fingers of my hands *

*are not enough*

*A stadium full of people doing the wave *

*is not enough*

*A city full of people going about their lives *

*is not enough*

*The population of my state lined up with hands outstretched *

*would not be enough*

*What would be enough?*

*How many fingers on *

*how many hands*

*would be needed*

*to tally up the amount*

*the figure*

*the number?*

*If we were to choose a point in time*

*and draw a line*

*and start counting from there*

*how many fingers on*

*how many hands*

*would we need?*

*Is it possible to know?*
