Friendly Wager

_____________________________________

Can you believe we won?

Second and third not first

We didn’t bet very much

We only bet when it’s for fun

*

While the funds won weren’t a ton

I always believed my luck cursed

Today we had the magic touch

Betting for the year – we’re done!

*

Ham sandwiches on a soft bun

Plenty of drinks to quench our thirst

Mint juleps and gin fizzes on the hutch

Best derby party? This is the one.

*

Can you believe we won?

Second and third not first

We didn’t bet very much

We only bet when it’s for fun.
