  Counting
Those who count
        can count

and those who donít count
        donít

Now the counters want to invent
a way of counting what canít be counted

The counters need counters
to account for the uncountable

It gets them back to square one
Meanwhile those who donít count
donít count on it

They count themselves lucky

Thereís nothing to it really
