not exactly stream of consciousness, but relatively random all the same. not to be taken too seriously

take a number

 

number seven number seven

 

to number our days,

and to place our bets,

teach us

 

under the I: ninety seven

and the number of the beast is...

 

number six number six

 

and the music goes round and round

 

we’re number one! we're number!

 

we’re  number two

we try harder

                                                         

is your number up???

 

I – ninety-seven

 

take a number from 1 to sixty-six

 

come on seven

 

dem bone bem bones, dem dry bones

 

you made you point

 

is your numbed up?  number fifty four

 

number fifty four

 

black cat lucky seven

 

three on a match

 

no luck

 

place your bets

 

round and round she goes                

numbering our days

 

round and round it goes

and it comes out

 

 where?

 

place you bets,

pick a number and

lay you money down

 

take a number

 

number seventy-seven

seventy-seven

 

the wheel is still in spin

ridden painted pony

spinning wheel spins

 

round and round

spinning wheel spin

 

if yer number’s not up

play another hand

 

number two hundred and seventy two

 

deal

 

we’re number one we’re number two

 

so deal …

I never realized how many things are 'numbered'. Good thinking.
