White Letter -home foreclosure contest

The postman knocked i had to sign
For this  imposing letter of mine
With shaking hands tore it open
Showing the official letter within

Tears filled my eyes when i read
You have one month to leave this homestead
Your payments are in arrears you have to go
I looked at my family and thought oh no 

I phoned the company to plead
To beg for an extension on this deed
To find the money that I owed
More and more my words flowed

We will give you  3 months to correct this debt
Thank you 's were very inept
I gathered my valuables to sell at a price
Prayed and prayed for help with this mess.

Time is running out my fears were to the for
 wondering who would lend me just a few score.
The postman knocked another letter in white
Somehow i had a feeling this would be alright

I read the letter and fell to my knee
Tears flooded my eyes so i couldn't see
The letter stated in simple words it said
"your this months lottery winner you have won £150k"

Prayers were answered my thanks  I said in prayer
Saved this lovely home that i savour
I can pay off  the mortgage, so you see
there will be no more sad white letters for me



Don't be silly a make sure your home is safe, 
the golden rule, always  pay your  mortgage/rent first.
Before any thing else.

    That last stanza is so very true, definitely pay your mortgage first, the other bills can be worked out, but at least you won't lost your house! This is quite the special write here my friend! I loved this subject, having ones home saved by the lottery! I really enjoyed reading this enlightening poem this morning! What a brilliant piece, Great Work!!
