The no shit haiku

I’m lucky, I’m lucky,
I can walk under ladders

– Joan Armatrading
You saw a black cat
killed under a ladder on
Friday the 13th?

– Leonard Blumfeld (© 2013)

Written upon inspiration by Haiku Heights and superstition.

:) Nice one for the prompt!!

I was never encouraged to follow any kind of superstition at home and hence never knew about superstitions, till much later in life!! :) This has been a fun prompt day and enjoying them all!! ;) I am amazed by the number of superstitions that exist!! :)

I'm late I'm late
my computer crashed on Friday the 13th...of old age...but the Senior Center experts were better than Humpty Dumpty's men.
Enjoyed your take on this one !
Peace
