The Lottery Ticket


Buy a lottery ticket then hope for the best,
Our chances of winning the same as the rest,
Only six numbers required, that's all it takes,
Dreams of a very few achieve that lucky breaks,

I've been so near but so far, my familiar tale,
Every week that goes by, yet again I shall fail,
I now have six numbers, all six numbers are mine,
I achieve it each week but not on the same line,

I'm destined to work to earn my daily bread,
Riches don't bring happiness so it's been said,
My ticket brings hope, as I mark off my card,
Surely only six numbers can't be all that hard
