The day of the week, the number and the colour

Do you ever feel you’ve had a past life

Because of things you know or feel,

You know it’s not from this lifetime

But you are certain it’s true and real.


I consistently seem to have issues

With Wednesday, the number three,

And the horrible colour green

Bad luck always follows, this I guarantee.

Not only do they bring bad luck

But they all relate to each other,

So Wednesday’s, especially the third

I race and duck for cover.


Something in a past life

Has happen on the third day,

A day that fell on Wednesday

And the colour green held sway.

What happened, you may ask

But I have not got a clue,

I’d change my luck, resolve things

If only I knew what to do.


I once loved a special guy,

He treated me like a queen,

He asked me to marry him

God no, I’d become Mrs Green.

Was this the universe being funny,

Having a laugh and playing games,

Why attract me to a special guy

Who is out bounds due to his name?


Will I ever know what ties together

Wednesday, Green and Three,

Not this lifetime but when they coexist

Trust me, you’ll find me absentee.
