A cloud blocked the sun just for a bit
Darkening the spot where I sit
The warmth of the air cooled quite a lot
When the cloud passed over that spot

I shivered as the chill reached my bone
That's when I heard my telephone
A premonition of something bad
Knowing the news would not be glad

The voice on the other end was cruel
Right over my mouth my hand flew
"This is just to let you know from me
You didn't win the lottery"
