LIFE'S LOTTERY LOL

For Carry On Tuesday
'Life is a ticket to
The greatest show on earth'


DO THIS ZOMBIE A FAVOUR

One over the eight last night
One guaranteed consequence
Sunday morning hangover

Grating Turbo ‘new-toy’ growl
With deafening ‘Dixieland’
Klaxon blast, wakes the un-dead

I turn over in my grave

Like a bear with a sore head
I grrrind my teeth; grrrunt and grrroan

Blinding curtain-crack half-light
Exposes clouds, sets the mood
Scowling sky; wild, wet week end

Unfriendly neighbourhood noise
Suburban sound bite samples
Barking dogs; boys banging doors
Next door’s new disc, noisy din
TV tuned in, turned up (((LOUD)))
Jackpot wind-up, ‘Win, Win, Win!!!’
Last night’s Numbers Game result
No Lottery joy for me

Chaos builds up in layers
Spreads thick icing on the cake

…And for the Cherry On Top

…I was due in work today…!

Over and over again
I repeat for all I’m worth
‘LIFE IS the winning TICKET
TO THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH’
‘LIFE IS the winning TICKET
TO THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH’


LIFE IS A TICKET
TO THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH
Choose it… if you can


Life is a ticket
To the greatest show on earth
Everyone’s welcome
IT DOESN’T START AT FORTY
Welcome everyone
To the greatest show on earth
LIFE is your ticket
