I'm Not a Superstitious Guy -- a poem about superstitions

Gregory K.

I’m not a superstitious guy.
I never knock on wood.
A 13 doesn’t frighten me, although some say it should.

I let cats cross in front of me
No matter if they’re black.
Sometimes I walk on sidewalks, and I step on every crack.

No, I’m not superstitious...
Though, there’s one thing, I suppose –
If things go well for me all day, I do not change my clothes.

So now I’ve got a problem:
What I’m wearing clearly reeks,
But things have gone fantastically for twenty-one straight weeks!

I'm posting an original poem each day in April in celebration of National Poetry Month. Links to this and other poems here on GottaBook (and I post all year round, because poetry is NOT just for April!) are collected over on the right of the blog under the headline "The Poems".
