Like Yesterday

Your odds of winning
Tomorrow's lottery
Are the same as your odds
Of randomly picking the same

Number as the one that won
The lottery yesterday.
Do you dream of matching
Yesterday's numbers, ever?

Are you afraid of playing
Yesterday's winners today
Because they surely can't
Crop up again tomorrow?

Assuming all's as fair
In your lottery as in love
And war, the chance of the same
Numbers being picked twice

In a row is exactly the same
As the chance of any particular
Other numbers (for instance,
Yours) coming up tomorrow.

Does that sound right to you?
No? Does it just feel wrong?
Congratulations. You've just won
One more ticket in the game of life.
