Get Yourself a Big Black Cat to Cancel Out Bad Luck

If there should be a pot hole as deep as Satan’s pit appearing as I’m driving, I’d run right over it! My husband’s luck is worse than mine, but we’re a package deal. So every bad thing that befalls him, I can also feel! One day I lost my best cat ever; needing a new pet, I looked and looked to find a cat, the best that I could get. One person getting desperate with no new owner found was feeling sad he’d have to take his poor cat to the pound. His cat , though not a lap cat, was pretty, sleek and black. The guy was leaving town; there’d be no way to give her back! I like to look to numbers for the logic that they show. Two negatives makes positive; that’s one true fact I know! So if a person has bad luck, it stands to reason that perhaps his bad luck could reverse by having a black cat!! I got that cat! She loudly purrs, which I find comforting It’s like my mom is right nearby with lullabies to sing. The cat’s my charm when in my arms; my luck has turned around, for she’s become the second best of cats I ever found! So if with many problems you’re always getting stuck, just get yourself a big black cat to cancel out bad luck! For the Create an Idiom Contest of Jesse Day (For those who don't know about this contest, the title is an idiom I made up for this poem)

    Hi Andrea, I think you have met the challenge. And may have inspired me to do one I think. You are good that's why you are always in the winner's circle. Everyone knows a cat is just a cat no matter the color. Excellent job my poetic friend . Good luck in the contest.A big seven: -) Alexis

    Bad luck be gone! We black cat owners know that black cats are, of all species, the greatest lovers. Your photo is magnificent, but I doubt I'd want to pet it. Love, daver

    AD, 66. Quite an interesting number corresponding to 666. Maybe there might be a message here. I have to get hot and write some more poems. It has been so hot though. Jim Horn

    LoL, Andrea', how can you not see what's in front. Lololol great read, had fun reading. I think you are right. A black cat might do away with the bad luck. I'm the opposite of superstition. Skat
