Lucky Winner

LUCKY WINNER


No!

My name does not figure
In any guest list
In the world

No!
I am not good enough
To partake
In the company of
The decent people

No!
The lady luck
Has never smiled on me

No!
No one has ever sent
Me a gift hamper

I loaf in the bazaar
With empty hands
No one has ever gave 
Me gift vouchers

I return home
With empty hands
