Sorry, This Question Does Not Compute

Let's see... how do I feel today Pretty much the same as yesterday except one day older Guess that's the least anyone can expect Wonder if an enormous amount of money just plopped in my lap Would that make any kind of a significant difference Sure would like to give that a shot Perhaps I'll buy a ticket for the next ten million dollar lotto To know how it feels when they call up and say “You are our grand prize winner! After the government grabs it's share We will be sending you a cheque for $136.50! As part of the rules of the contest You'll be required to make a televised statement Excitably explaining how this win has changed your life!” WOWSERS! I'm overwhelmed Been wearing these same old holey beat up jeans For nigh unto ten years now You won't believe how much this means to me... Don't know how I'll ever begin to thank you! I apologise if this sounds a bit cynical But where did the other $9,999,863.50 go This reply came back... “Sorry this question does not compute!” (I'm exaggerating a wee bit, of course!) © Jack Ellison 2015

    When I won the jack pot with Dragon... I learned that it's better to give than to receice. Really! Honest! Want a Dragon?... Now Dragon! I was only making a joke! Yes, in my book you're the best! Now... please... go out side and play... He broke the air conditioner again... They can't keep up with so much hot air!... LOL... OOOPPPS! He caught me again... Gotta run! See ya... Last one in the lake is a Silly Old Dragon!...
