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

Hobbies are Addictive.

Winning is Everlasting.

Losing always Ends.

      Players claim systems

      yet still no jackpots for them

      yet they still insist

      ////////////////////////////////

      People claim systems

      but never jackpots for them

      the lottery seels them

      /////////////////////////////////

      Predictions put nil

      in your wallet if not played

      whoop tee howlin'  do

      Braggarts come and go

      transparent and oh so slow

      in their minds, legends

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

      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.

          Ladymylena, I had a wonderful day with a great win, which some one tried to turn into crap and I did like my Mother and gran would tell me "when crap comes knocking at your Door, Don't open!" And if that fails... take a drink.  I don't Drink but I do load up on the Ice cream, BaskinR or Brayer's! That other one is over rated!

          forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

          Now, does it count??

                    Pick 3 pays the most

                            D*** it I am mad. 

                            I played 1 0 4 today.

                            They drew 1 0 3.

                             

                            The numbered balls go

                            up and down and up and down

                            inside the machine. 

                             

                            I just won two bucks

                            playing Mega Millions. 

                            Is this good or bad?

                             

                            People I don't know

                            asked me for money after

                            I won the jackpot.

                             

                            Pick 3 and Pick 4

                            Cash 5 and the Powerball.

                            Those are our state's games.

                             

                            I am waiting for

                            the day that 1 0 4 will

                            win the lottery. 

                             

                            In two thousand ten

                            Powerball and Mega Mill-

                            ions joined forces. 

                             

                            Louisiana

                            has only computer games. 

                            Grr, that makes me mad.

                             

                            4 0 1 has not

                            hit in Washington State since

                            nineteen eighty-eight. 

                             

                            D*** it I just missed

                            winning by one number but

                            it's a stupid game.

                             

                            Note: in all of my haikus, "0" sounds like "oh," not "zero."

                            Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                            In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!
