Tracks of a Wandering Mind

Poetry, stories and random thoughts from a wandering mind.


(Some fun with common superstitions)

An apple a day keeps the doctor away,
At least that’s what they tell me.
A broom ‘cross the sill will make a witch ill,
So brooms they try to sell me.

A black cat in your path will bring you wrath,
So tabbies are in favor.
The foot of a rabbit makes luck a good habit,
But makes running a labor!

Turn seven times to break a bad rhyme,
And a curse is removed.
An itchy palm says that money will come,
But not that it goes too soon!

The thirteenth on Friday is such a bad day,
You’d do well to stay indoors,
And breaking a mirror won’t make things clearer,
It’s all superstition, of course!
