The Lucky Penny


Pick Up 

  a Lucky Penny.


Put it

  in your pocket.


Keep it,

  fast store it,

safe away.


Head’s Up,

  that’s Luck!


That’s Good Luck

  you’ve found.


Head’s Down,

  turned around,

turn it over.



  toss it away –



  Let it just stay,

to be discovered,


once again.


For Never 

  is False Hope

ever better

   than none –



  the Lucky Penny

be of  Good Luck

  to someone.
