Change of Count

Old timers count on their fingers.
True base is binary.
Turn on, turn off;
It’s true, don’t scoff.
Do not be contrary.

Ask your average actuary.
He’ll give his hat a doff,
Will that master
Of counting your days off.

Computers think in on or off,
Like your brain, but faster.
Doubt, which lingers
About fingers
Brands you antiquary.

Counting fingers is so last year,
Not done by the bringers.
Is binary.
Not so ten count clingers.
