Slender Riddle

Just equal are my head and tail,

My middle slender as can be,

Whether I stand on head or heel,

‘Tis all the same to you or me.

But if my head should be cut off,

The matter’s true, although ’tis strange,

My head and body, severed thus,

Immediately to nothing change.

    The numeral 8. Looks the same no matter which side is up. If you cut at the middle, the top and bottom resemble the number zero.
