Guess what is today? Guest Posting Friday! And as usual I have another guest author all dressed up to entertain the hell out of you. So please welcome Tim Torkildson, who will be remembered as the first person to submit a poem for Spyglassviewer. Woo hoo! Continue Tim…
If I Won the Lottery
Scratching off a winning ticket from the lottery,
Hasn’t changed a single thing about poor little me.
I still take the bus to work, my lunch is in a sack,
I just send my kids to school inside a Cadillac.
I’m paying off the debts of friends and fam’ly, by the way,
Pulling up the kitchen floor to put in some parquet.
I’m a simple person and a sudden windfall means,
Less to me than onion peel or any hill of beans.
Sure I bought a diamond ring and bracelets made of gold,
And that leather jacket to protect me from the cold.
But otherwise I haven’t changed, my needs are very basic,
I’m getting liposuction and then going in for Lasik.
Of course, our house is very small; I do not like to cramp it,
I wonder can I move into that place owned by Jed Clampett?
