Rounding Error

We are the forgotten decimals,
unnoticed until we accumulate
and cause the equation to break.
We follow the scores with our infinities
and drift, aimless, after the calculator runs out of
memory.
The businessmen, the generals, the gods in their lofty towers
barely understand, barely consider us,
and in their haste – to raise, to lower,
they cast us aside with no further thought.
