May I? - Περισσεύει;

Poem By Kostas Lagos

I've never really had any luck

Like a caught in a crossfire duck

When I crossed my fingers

There were lots of splinters

May I ask you for a buck?

Την τύχη την καλή ποτέ δεν είδα

Σαν ποντίκι ήμουν στη παγίδα

Κι αν έβρισκα κανένα γούρι

Μου γινότανε αγγούρι

Περισσεύει μία των ευρώ δεσμίδα;

A sweet limerick indeed. One really feels helpless when runs out of luck. Enjoyed thoroughly. Thanks for sharing.10++
luck crossfired in lazy fingers! luck crossed fires by active fingers!
But you must be a man of a lot of pluck to ask for a buck just like that. Good humour.
Hello Kostas....a limerick, we all can relate to. Very Funny Panagiota
Splendid limerick... what can one do when one is down on luck? But beseech!

How can you talk to people about God
When you don't hear His voice in the cicadas' singing?
How can you immerse yourself in ongoing prayer
When the melody of crickets doesn't bring you in katanyxis?
