I Need Money

I really – really! –
Need some
Money.
I know that.
But I also know that
You need to spend
Money to make
Money.
That, or get a
Job.
But fuck
That.
So I take my last
Twenty dollars
And I buy a
Lottery
Ticket.

I lose.

  1. Smh 🤦‍♂️..

    Taking a risk can be very rewarding..

    Everything in life is a chance.. and its worth taking..

    But some chances we just can’t afford to risk losing…
    Like everything else.. gambling takes some guts… some tact.. and plenty of hope..
    you have to lose too many times to win once…

    That $20. Is meal for a week.. and now you lost it.. you are worst than before..

    Think about it..
