Poem-a-Day April 2019 Writer’s Digest Challenge #8. Theme: Lucky Number #aprpad

The Fool

He’d won the Powerball with 1 ball
but lost both his balls
when he met the woman of his night dreams–
a girl who saw a goldmine in his family jewels,
for when he gave it to her,
she let him have it
& took the rest–
all 7 pounds of flesh–
& his child support became
her livelihood.
