Accumulator by David Golledge

Rate this Poem (5 best)


The gambler had a run
of luck at the racetrack
recently. Several fancied
outsiders romped home to
win him a hefty accumulator. Later

he collected his winnings,
trapped his tidy sum
in an elastic band
to keep his sum tidy.
Gently pocketed the neat bundle.

Upon reaching his home
he stuffed his wedge
into the thicket bush,
bordering the path
to his abode. Hedging his bets.
