Lotto Life - Poem by Frances Macaulay Forde

It unites us,
this dream
to have choices.
Whether to work
or laze,
decide our futures
instead of waiting
for opportunity.

The universal language
of need - not greed.

We've lost control
caught up in the flow
of magazine lifestyle.
The one we desire
and reality…

to walk through town
- not asking the price,
carrying the labels
which define our success,
- purchases we don't need.

It's universal
the conviction that money
will right all our wrongs
and make the world spin
in our direction.

When we buy a ticket
we've planted the seed.
The seed of our fantasies.
