 once upon a time

Seventh of May.
 Seven times seven is 49
one short of 50, as well you know?
But when you're skint and get a phone call
Explaining that between the government
And insurance companies you’ve just received
5,000 pounds you can understand why 49 although
it’s one short of 50 the 7th of may will  
always hold a special place in my heart.
The meaning to me is crystal clear, if not to you.
 Pay A few debts, go for lunch a lengthy one,
as I’m sure you’ll agree Might even perchance
take a wee drink or two. Never know may try seven
after all it’s now and Forever after my lucky number.
Let’s say cheers to the Seventh of May in the year 2013.
I do believe the lotto I’ll do. Use 7 and 13 as part of the six
 or is it five don’t know And to tell the truth I couldn’t care less
because after  The phone call  I know in my heart I’m a winner today.
