- What Matters
Friday thirteenth, that’s the date.
trying to avoid bad luck- it’s too late.
A black cat crosses your path,
a demon, an angry spirit, feel its wrath.
But there is a ray of hope in finding a horseshoe,
pointed at you.
Hang it on your door,
to bring good fortune to all but there’s more,
break a mirror and for seven years,
a series of unfortunate events, the beginning of your fears.
Open an umbrella inside,
knock on wood- you haven’t yet died.
Walk under a latter and make sure to place your thumb,
in-between your middle finger and index, don’t be dumb!
Cross your fingers and toss salt over your shoulder to turn it around,
an itchy right palm means money will be found.
So search for the four-leafed clover,
in a field a thousand times over,
because pulling out a grey hair will cause ten more to grow back,
but reverse your streak with a rabbit’s foot around your neck in a sack.
