Of course I’m not superstitious
I dodge ladders because it’s safe.
Number thirteen, even Friday
I remember, but do not care –
It’s just a date, like any other.
The Money Tree is different
It was a gift- I nurtured it.
When it grew big I took cuttings,
Gave it away, the cuttings grew
I, too, flourished. Is this due
To the Money Tree?
