Tried this over three years ago, since we have some new blood, so to speak, let's give it another shot.

A haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that consists of three lines of five, seven and five syllables. 

Itcan get a lot more complicated than that, but to keep it simple, theonly requirement is three lines, seventeen syllables, five, seven, andfive.

They don't have to rhyme or make sense, let's try some.

Example:

Lotto makes me think

The numbers are in my mind

but they never hit

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

Lep

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Pick Three is my game
        Six way combos and doubles
        Triples are more rare...

            Thanks for the replies!

            They say a system

            they have will be a winner

            yet not a jackpot

             

            Another drawing

            yet one more losing ticket

            but we still must play

             

            The lotto's not rigged

            We just can't pick our noses

            So the jackpot grows

                        RNG is bad
                        You can't trust a computer
                        Ball drawings are best
