Zero’s Plaint


Zero told his mum crying bitterly,

‘I feel so unhappy, I’m so unlucky!

All my friends from one to nine

Laugh at me make fun of mine

I am round and dumpy they call me ‘fatso!’

I have no value, I am a worthless zero.’

Mama drew him closer, kissed his chubby cheeks

‘Wipe your tears and then say cheese

Whoever says this knows not you.

You are the one who adds value

Wherever you go but remember

Always take the right position then see the wonder.

Now that  your real worth you know

Cheer up my boy you’re a hero.’
