The Proof Is in the Proverb

“A lucky person is someone who plants pebbles and harvests potatoes” Greek Proverb

A lucky person is someone who plants pebbles
and harvests potatoes,  Call it luck or call it
thievery,  one must be considered innocent
until proven guilty,  but,

I saw him plant the pebbles in a row
on fallow soil that grew just other rocks,
and when he did the harvest, don’t you know,
he stepped his feet into his neighbor’s plot.

There he plucked the fruit of neighbor’s labor
and took it home and put it in his pot,
and still I think he’s lucky,  yes indeed!
Lucky that his butt’s not filled with shot.
