Think I will play the lottery
Make a million dollars quick
But which numbers are the winners?
Of which lucky six should I pick?

Seventeen ~ the day I was born
Can't get much luckier than that
Thirty-six ~ one for each year here
Better than any lesser stat

Now eighteen is a good number
In October was our first date
And the twenty-second for sure
The day we claimed each other mate

Number twenty-nine should do fine
For the day of my daughter's birth
And for my next little girl
Number two is a day of worth

No better numbers could I pick
For this dollar that's in my hand
I think I'll buy some gum instead
And let the value of them stand

Your millions are in the reason behind your numbers. You're a smart man. Nicely done.

Thank you one and all... I like this piece too... nice and simple with a good message, and its got a minty fresh chew. When I consider all that I have, I'm a pretty wealthy guy. Wouldn't mind a million in the bank, but it would never equal what I got. Have a peaceful weekend yall!
