I hope you don’t win the lottery,
Because you’re such much more,
Than someone who got lucky,
And went to the right liquor store.

I hope you don’t win the lottery,
And with it the title that can’t get unstuck,
That your life was made from nothing,
That you’re just a product of dumb luck.

I hope you don’t win the lottery.

I hope you don’t win the lottery,
So you won’t forget,
That life is more than a price tag,
A lesson too many regret.

The person who wins,
Is the person who actually loses,
While they smile for the camera,
Their heart and their soul, quietly begin to grow bruises.

We crown a new champion!
There’s a new celebrity!
When in fact all we’ve done,
Is witness the beginning of a new tragedy.

“But this is the greatest day of my life!
How can it be the worst?”
You said that about your first marriage,
Next time, look at your wedding pictures first.

I know you won’t win the lottery,
Because you’re not so stupid to play,
My friends and family,
Are not wired that way.

But if you should be so glib,
As to buy a ticket,
I wish you good luck, and I hope you lose,
For I wouldn’t wish anyone a life so wicked.

I hope you don’t win the lottery.
