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

      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!
