A Million Dreams in one

I’m going to win the lottery

I don’t know when

I just know I will


And when I do

I’ll say goodbye

To all the people

That hold me back

And make me miserable

Those who put me down

Taking my hopes and dreams


I’ll buy a desert island

And design a beautiful little cottage

Just for me

I’d build the kitchen of my very own dream

with an island of marble and two sinks


I’ll eat the finest food from the sea

And maybe even have an extra cabin

For my stilettos


I’d buy myself a helicopter

So I can fly by my worst enemies

Waving my winners cheque,

Just to annoy them


I’d drape colored lights from the tropical trees

and have all night discos

with no one to please


I'll wear my hula hula skirt

and my coconut bra

dancing in the breeze

playing the bongo drums too


Inviting “special guests only”

to my bar

that Is called “Arse Hole Free”

and greet them with my very own cocktail



“would you like to be me”

              Wonderful fun write Teddy, yes I would like to be you and with that money I may be able to build my jazz club and have music played live all the time.

              When the lottery started in the UK in the nineties until the time I retired in 2012 I was a member of a syndicate, there would be ten or so in it and in all the time the most money the syndicate won was £100.😫


              • Teddy.15

                Syndicates must be fun Especially those who have won, I like your style of building a jazz club keep playing your dream may one day come true. May I ask only one request do not hire orchi to sing (a charming smile)

                • Goldfinch60

                  I nave banned Orchi and any bagpiper to play the tune "Far Away" and the further away the better. 😂
