        I think you will win

        You will take me out dancing....

        and buy me a drink

         

        LOL! ;-)

        If anyone asks

        (and not that they would)

        We'll be down in Mississippi

        And up to no good

          Good point on the haiku liberties, rdgrnr

          jarasan's ouija

          made him forget the one rule

          of five-seven-five

          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.

            i think i'm turning japanese (7)

            i really think so (5)

            translated: (Romanized)

            nippon wo mawasu (5)

            watashi wa watashi ga nippon wo mawashi te iru to omou (13 -+1) 

            watashi wa hontoni so omou (8)
             

            SO:

            grand jackpot prize (4)

            we all sorely desire (6)

            joyous cries (2)

            translated:

            From Wikipedia:

            • Possibly the best known Japanese haiku is Matsuo Basho's "old pond":

             furuike ya kawazu tobikomu mizu no oto

            This separates into on as:

            fu-ru-i-ke ya (5) ka-wa-zu to-bi-ko-mu (7) mi-zu no o-to (5)

            Translated:

            old pond . . .     (2)

            a frog leaps in   (3) 

            water’s sound  (2)


            Two more haiku by Basho:

             fuji no kaze ya ogi ni nosete Edo miyage

            the wind of Mt. Fuji  (3)

            I've brought on my fan! (3)

            a gift from Edo (2)

             

            hatsu shigure saru mo komino wo hoshige nari

            the first cold shower  (3)

            even the monkey seems (3)

            to want a little coat of straw (6)

                  That's funny, I was thinking of me and you doing something where you might be screaming my name all - night - long.

                   

                  Yep, you guessed it - Clog Dancing! I usually clog down hard on somebody's foot at least once and you'd probably scream my name and knock me upside the head like everybody else does! I'm so bad I might have ya screaming my name all night long!

                      Numbers come in dreams
