What I Look For In A Number

When they had all been shared out
The numbers I had were not quite as numerous as yours
But they were very beautiful numbers, so that was ok.
For future reference, here’s what I look for in a number –
Anything that is almost-but-not-quite palindromic;
That ends in lots of nines or has zeros in the middle
Or both; Or is divisible by three; Or has lots of straight lines;
Just fresh-faced and hard-working hopeful young integers.
