Fight for a Just Cause

Legitimise The Squillion.


There are six zeroes in a million,
Nine in a billion,
Twelve in a trillion,
And fifteen in a quadrillion.

But now it's time to decide,
That eighteen zeroes make a squillion.

Globalisation has meant that the British have conceded to the Yanks and so British billions and trillions are now the same as American ones.

(We have to let our Yankee friends win the odd battle, it's diplomacy.)

But, who is to decide what 18 zeroes are going to be called?

I vote for the squillion.
