a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Mega Millions

I'll not buy a Hummer
A Rolls or a Cadillac
Give me a shiny pickup
To haul stuff in the back.

I might build a barn or two
Or bring my horses back
I'll not build a castle
'Cause I kinda like my shack.

I might change the cash to gold
Bury in the ground but with my memory
I would forget
And it'd never be found.

The Mega Millions was so big
I couldn't write it once
Did you know you must buy a ticket?
I feel like quite the dunce.

Well, you can't win if you don't enter.
I'd donate a lot of it. Wouldn't build a big house either - what would I do with all that room but fill it with junk.
I confess - I would splurge and buy a Bugatti sports car though...

love this one and also fully understand every word of it. i am with you on no castle, i like shacks best of all..
a shack on a beach would be nice. since we don't buy those tickets we will not win, but if we did win, bob wants a hummer... i want a new Kia Soul... to park in front of the new old shack..

I'd be coming down your road, with your horses in tow behind me and a big bag of money just for you. I would also buy a truck, well darn, I gotta buy the ticket first too. Loved the poem Gail - have a great day, eh

Dreaming said...

Thanks for the smile. We didn't buy a ticket... oh well!

From time to time I partake in the ticket buying with my thoughts leaning towards college money and sandy beaches. Oma Linda

I buy a ticket every month and would pay off my debts. Then I would come see you and shoot the breeze with you on the porch.

Awesome poem, Gail. :-)

If the weatherman is right, you may not have that snow come this weekend. ;-)

Supposed to get to near 80 tomorrow!

Have a great Friday, Gail. ♥

Another remised opportunity…

;)

PS. I loved the part about bringing the horses back. Sometimes I wish that for you.

They don't sell them here in Nevada, so no chance of winning! If I ever did win something like that, an animal rescue is first on my list! Our community does not have one!
