Can nothing be an important concept in itself?
<br> </br>This poem pays homage to the invention of zero as a number, in the form of a rhyming riddle. And (foolishly for my sanity) I decided to add the constraint that the first letter of each line would spell out the alphabet.

You are a man of many talents Mr Russo!
thankyou, thankyou very much!nice to hear x in tic tac toe used in sentence.bloody big ups mate!
Thanks mark – i tried to avoid that old cliche of using a word starting with “ex” and just removing the “e”.
Of course zero is an important concept. I bought a book called “Zero: the Biography of a Dangerous Idea” by Charles Seife just recently, although I haven’t read it yet, and another book I’ve got about calendars and the calculation thereof points out that the Romans didn’t have zero so they couldn’t do decimals etc… Zero is a very cool idea!
I will read it again ….. for your language is not mine…
In any case, it is a Beautiful idea you have had
This just got linked up in the forums as an example of how to make poetry sellable. I hadn’t seen it before … very impressed.
Nice idea with the ode, and a great idea of putting it up for sale as an image!
