Big Numbers – 3rd November 2021

I used to work for pennies
Amazed to see a pound
I thought that I’d made it
With the riches I had found
A million was the biggest
Number that ever existed
Until capitalism ran amok
And growth could not be resisted
Next came the billions
Followed by trillions more
What’s the next big number
And what’s it needed for?
I moved to another country
With an exchange rate that was fair
And the way they counted money
I could be a multi-millionaire
