Digitize me

I am identified
By my number
My insurance company knows me
By my number
SBA has my paperwork filed
By my number
I have a name
But names do not matter
Road Home can only talk to me
If I can give them my number
The bank is happy to serve me
By my number
The grocery store will give me food
If I give them my number
The more numbers we use
The more numb to humanity we are
I have a name
But I'm nobody without my number
The day is coming soon
When we will all be fully digitized
And the only digit I will give you
Is the middle one

Nice. (But did you intend the binary to spell anything?)

It's taken a while, but I have forgotten my fema number.

It has only happened by our own apathy and assent.

Binary isn't dehumanizing now, is it? Base 10 is just as artificial.

Domo arigato, Mr Roboto.

The zeros and ones are huge. You've gotten poetic.

Thanks to a binary to ascii converter, I've found your secret message:

"Please forgive the whining. I am just a little frustrated today. Peace, Tim"

You win the cupie doll!

Peace,
