The Lottery Game

That lucky day is out there, and someone has to win!

A numbers game for dreamers when their dreams are stretching thin.

When you play the lottery you’ll hear all sorts of tales;

of lightning strikes and shark attacks more likely to prevail.

But yet! That gleaming glow machine – that singing siren: “Try your luck!”

You haven’t stashed your cash just yet and hell, it’s just a buck.

But you’re not paying for the chance to be a millionaire –

it’s that momentary thrill before that ticket greets your stare.
