The Armband and the Eight

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You don’t need to see the armband
to know who is the captain-
it’s written all over him.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 His number is twice
the value of his
England shirt.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Eight is a perfect
cube, a Fibonacci
number.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Eight is a perfect
power, the atomic
number of oxygen:

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 a magic number,
a digit that bytes
you to bits.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 And this particular
eight is infinity
up off its back
and running.

Notes

For Steven Gerrard.

Without eight bits to a byte we couldn’t write on this website.
