Poetry by Jambo Stewart

I’d be awestruck

If I had the luck

And won the lottery

But what I’d do

I haven’t a clue

And would it change me?

Would several million

Or a couple of billion

Change my entire outlook?

Would cashmere rugs

And high-end drugs

Get me on the hook?

Would I be dead within a year?

That’s something I fear

About getting rich overnight

Would I lose myself?

Would it affect my mental health?

Would I lose my struggle and fight.

I might lose my passion

In an apathetic fashion

And stop doing what I love?

Would it drive me to hate

Receiving letters by the crate

From beggars everyday?

Perhaps I would hide

But I’ll err on the safe side

And decide not to play
