Hippety Skippety!

Striding out along my way
I saw a friend and said good-day
And so the car-crash missed me

I was late so had a jog
But had to stop to miss a dog
And a lovely lady kissed me

I missed my turning by the lake
A car fell in it by mistake
I didn’t get a splash

I stopped to buy a cup of tea
And entered in the lottery
And won a stack of cash

Your life you’ll find you can enhance
If you follow every lucky chance
That stops you in your tracks

There is a problem with this rule
That may befall a luckless fool
These are very rare attacks!
