I suppose there are worse things to suffer from. Like fear of wiping your bum. But really Triskaidekaphobia is a tad out to lunch. Except maybe when applying it to this credit crunch. Never fear, I will give you the Face it Facts dear. Crap! I stole Betsy's word, but she's a dear and will not flip me the bird. This 13 is really bringing me bad luck. Riiiight and because of it I will get hit by a truck.
Yes, it means you are afriad of the big scary number "13" oh no! There it is at my show. Run, flee, hide. You cannot let it be seen far and wide. So anyway this should be fun, as I go down the 13 tracks of dVerse one by one.
13 I cannot find.
Gives me such piece of mind.
They even skipped a street for me.
If they did not every accident would be 13's fault you see.
I hit the elevator button for fourteen.
And 13 just is not seen.
Aww isn't that nice.
They once again played to my vice.
Oh no! It's Friday and 13 together.
We better watch out for stormy weather.
Even though it's the most common day.
That 13 tends to have its say on any weekday.
Yes there is religion too.
13 at the last supper for brew.
Also in Norse myth 13 came to Odin's feast
And it was ruined by that Loki beast.
That has to make it oh so legit.
Further verifying such a fit.
Oh do not give me any more facts.
I am set in my ways and acts.
Who cares if there were 14 in some earthquake.
Or 10 got squashed like a pancake.
Or 5 had uneven toes.
Or 50 got killed by killer windows.
13 is truly the bad luck one.
It will always make me run.
The 24 folks in the plane crash.
The 7 with a bad rash.
The 11 with no sweat glands.
The 19 afraid to shake hands.
Or the 15 with one shoe.
With 17 aliens in their loo.
Are all just out of luck.
Because 13 is what makes bad luck go cluck.
I do not care if it was good luck before.
It brings bad luck now galore.
Who cares if a suggested $800 - $900 million is lost each Friday.
That thirteen decides to play.
It is just so scary.
I'd rather walk under a ladder, see a black cat and make my toes hairy.
What is that you say?
13 does not cause dismay?
Pfffft I am not a Placebo case.
Wait until 13 shows its face.
Then you will know.
You will know at your show.
That 13 is out to get you.
You and the dVerse crew.
Oh no! 13 is going to come after me. I guess I better flee! Pfffft, just some crappy number and if you think by pressing 14 on an elevator you are truly on the 14th floor, you are dumber than a cucumber. But I will now let you and your scary number be. Maybe I should charge a 13 dollar fee? Then they will round up for bad luck, could be a golden duck. Point is, as always, if you look you will find, no matter what number is "oh so scary" to your behind. That is all today for my scary number math class and off I go with my little rhyming ass.
Later all, have a nice fall.
