‘I’m going back to bed’, he said.
‘It’s Friday the Thirteenth,
I could end up dead!’
‘Even my Haiku has been affected –
and it’s not even going to be a Tanka;
so, what else can I do?’
He made himself a coffee,
and whistled ‘too-da-loo!’
returned to the safety of his four-poster…
he didn’t have a four-poster!
‘Oh, dear.’ he mumbled,
‘I now fear for the worst.’
and, at that exact moment,
the waterbed burst.
I would hope someone who has a birthday on the 13th of any month doesn’t read this one. They would be permanently affected. 😉
I think that of the few that read my words, a small percentage indeed would be affected by any of my random witterings. The date is also a random construct – may we all exist in safety whatever number we give to the day of our birthing – G:)
Ha Ha. At least I was born on the 14th day.
16th for me – phew!
Also hoping that your date of birth is not the 13th! 🥸
nope. nah nah
If it had been the unlucky 31st, that would have reduced the chances, too.
