Some Luck Is Better Than… Well (limerick)

Updated on November 13, 2015

Each night game of lotto I’d play

Till finally luck came my way

Although just a token

For me luck had spoken

The machine was broken that day

      If you didn't have bad luck, you wouldn't have any luck. Just saying, you got lucky with this winning limerick.

      Mh -

      The numbers that came up that night

      didn't match those he'd believed right

      exhaled relief

      instead of grief

      try again tonight he just might.

      Great job, sir! Enjoyed!
