Lil Bit O’ Luck and a Blustery St. Pat’s

Twas a blustery day

On St. Patty’s

I went looking for my Pot O’Gold

From Astoria

All the way to Tipperary

I brought me Bud’s

And me other friend Rheingold

When at last

I was feeling a wee weary

And the trail seemed to be getting quite cold

A Leprechaun!

Named Lil’ Bit of Luck

Suddenly left me quite cheery

With the monumental story of riches he told

The Lil’ Lad said in a vision

You must hurry!

Before the last darned ducat is sold!

Dancing a jig

That he called

Mega Millions!

He swore my Jackpot

In cursive tone

Hath been created!

From down yonder super-natural kaleidoscope

Straightaway I ran as fast as I could muster!

The winds were a-howling with bluster!

Scraping my legs from the thorns in the thicket

No more pain!

Promised again and again

The Great Money Spigot

When Holy Begorrah!

Stood a fabulously formed rainbow!

Perfectly centering the arch stood a tree

Jesus Mary and Joseph!

There was dangling a ticket!

Blowing in the breeze

All Night I dreamed of exorbitant riches!

Of new cars!  A big house! And some new fancy britches!

I could barely wait to consume the Daily News

My excitement!

Propelling me forward

Awake from my slumber!

I was aghast

My heartbeat fast

As I soon discovered

The Lotto clerk smirked knowingly

At the results uncovered

I had not even hit one blasted number!
