The National Lottery.

The National Lottery,
A tax upon stupidity,
As those who unwise are,
Even on a single ticket spend too much by far,
As the government like a rocket,
Does a portion pocket,
After which more hands reach out,
And voices loudly shout,
That this money will the poor assist,
Though of course the voices will as well insist,
It must the money also for their efforts pay,
So the poor in ease can play.

No lottery you see,
Means no money,
For the fees to pay,
So the poor each day,
Would just have to do without,
As without the cash, few for them could shout.
