The Biggest Powerball Drawing - Poem by Hebert Logerie
The biggest Powerball drawing is tonight
It starts with a BIG B as in Billion
It's worth over $1.5 Billion, that's right
Of course, playing the lottery is gambling
And you must be a lucky stallion
Over eighteen years old to step in this ring
Because gambling is a sin and a disease
Like depression, envy etc., and it's not easy
To get it completely out of your system
However, you never know, don't blame
Me; spending two dollars will not rock the boat
Take a chance tonight, put your best foot
Forward, and take a chance
Best of luck, and be ready to dance.
The fattest Powerball drawing is a few minutes away
Let's sit down to watch our dreams slip away in the bay.
