"FEIGNING LUCK" by JTK.CA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Feigning luck,
I'll pull a crank;
Yank a practical joker out of the deck;
Phone you in the voice of Ed McMahon
And tell you you've just won
Negative ten million dollars,
And all you have to do to get rich is
Travel with it into an opposite universe.

Feigning mathematical improbabilities,
I'll bring you a long shot on a silver platter
And proclaim,
"You are one in a million!"
Neglecting to mention the six thousand others.*

Feigning luck,
I'll pull the crank
Of a one-armed bandit,
And take you for everything you've got.

* Tad's Note: As the world's population of 6,586,687,679 (estimated at 9:11 AM, 2007-04-29) increases by more than one person per second

I'll have to edit the poem from saying "six thousand others" to saying "seven thousand others" pretty soon. Originally it said "five thousand others," because the world population was five billion when I originally wrote the poem. So, next time someone tells you that you are "one in a million," realize that there are 6.586687679 thousand other "one in a millions"...approximately ;-)

Mathematically yours,
