1/. Proof there is no God I haven’t won the lottery! What else does it take? 2/. Wanting to comment But no idea what to say I’ll skip it for now 3/. Underslept again It’s still night and Winter out Snooze on three more months 4/. Teleport dinner Pizza in nanoseconds Or you get it free 5/. Death takes Sir Terry Discworld drifts on happy smiles Never forgotten Arthur Chappell

It might improve my chances of winning if I buy a ticket

@Jessicalynnt I have bought tickets some weeks but often can't even afford one - I don't look at the numbers those weeks. I'd hate my regular numbers coming up on a night I haven't played. I could be a millionaire and not even know it.

everyone should read Pratchett - I'd have it carved into the ten commandments

Great haiku poetry, Arthur. What a beautiful ode to the late Terry Pratchett, too.

@arthurchappell Loved your haikus. You reminded me of two things - that I love pizza and could eat it everyday if possible and Janis Joplins song about that Mercedes Benz
