Day twenty of NaPoWriMo. Today’s prompt is to write about facts. I thought I’d take this opportunity to write against some false facts.
A cat crossing your path is not bad luck,
The same way a horseshoe does not bring luck.
There’s no risk to walk under a ladder,
Friday the thirteenth is like any other.
Luck itself is only an illusion,
Probability will clear your confusion.
To influence luck is way beyond our scope,
The only thing you can do is to hope.
If wishes and prayers were to come true,
You would not be forced to work now would you?
Stars, stones and numbers don’t influence your life,
Even now such superstitions are rife.
