Scratchcard Dreams…

Scratchcard

I scratched away my hopes and dreams,

On a ticket from the shop,

I scratched it with a golden coin,

I thought my heart would stop.

But alas, alack I dreamed in vain,

Of the riches I could win,

My thoughts of diamonds truly crushed,

My money’s wearing thin,

No more I’ll gamble on impulse,

Spending to extremes,

I understand the lottery is…,

Tax on a poor girl’s dreams.
