On this day take great care,
Do very little unless you dare
To beat the odds, to push your luck.
Today better to your couch stay stuck.
You know not to open indoors an umbrella
Otherwise the 13th will be far from stellar!
Should you forget and walk under a ladder,
For sure your day will only get badder.
Avoid stepping on a sidewalk crack
‘Cause Mom doesn’t want a broken back.
Don’t let a black cat cross your path
Or you might not take another bath
Secure your future for the next 7 years
By not dropping a mirror and shedding tears.
Uh-oh! Did clumsy you spill the table salt?
Toss over your shoulder so misfortune you’ll halt.
On the 13th knock on all the wood you see
To ward off threats to prosperity.
Over spilt milk you won’t find ME crying;
I’m not superstitious, or am I lying?
