I rose from bed,
Was full of dread,
As down the hall I walked.

I looked behind,
And I did find,
Was by a black cat stalked.

I ran inside
My room to hide,
Tripped and broke the mirror.

Went to the kitchen,
By now was bitchin'
What else is there to fear?

On breakfast steak,
The salt did shake,
Spilled some on the table.

My wife was there,
She said beware,
Best leave while you're still able.

Across the floor,
And out the door,
Walked beneath a ladder.

I then did scream,
Was not a dream,
How could this day go badder?

I stepped on crack
And wrenched my back,
As bent down for the news.

I saw the date,
Can now relate,
Got the Friday the 13th blues.

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.

I cower in bed on this day of days
under jammies I wear my Depends
For I will not venture forth until
Friday the 13th ends.

My lunch is brought without salt
on paper plates that won't break
Superstitious? Not I! Heaven forbid!
It's just there are no chances I'll take!


Neener, neener? Is this the erudite lawyer speaking? Do you end your summations with - "he's guilty Your Honor! Neener, neener!"

But I found a penny, picked it up? *G*

Thanks for the grins, Tim... It'll all be over in another 10 hours or so. *G*

Mirror mirror on the wall
please don't break or I will bawl

Ladder ladder, standing your ground
'scuse me while I walk around

Black cat black cat, hurry, SCAT!
for on Friday 13th, my heart pitty-pats.

Superstitious, no, not me
but if you see me being blue
'cause everything's gone wrong,
then blame the 13th, and hoist a brew
and share one with a friend or two.

...and my mother could probably think of a lot more superstitions...here is one from my grandmother: if you point at a rainbow your finger will fall off...funny poem, Tim...i hope you survived the day? ...i often wonder exactly where all those old superstitions originated...so i've enrolled in a "magic, witchcraft, & relegion" class

PS: black is my fav color (cats too)...and my fav number is 13

Paranoid of a number? My fave number is 26. That is 13 x 2. Aah. Is your back O.K.?

The poem was very fitting.
