Fortune Cookie Folly ― Day 26 of NaPoWriMo 2015

You will inherit

You will inherit some money
or a small piece of land. Whoopee
That's what fortune cookie had said
Rushed right home to spread the good news

Next to the auto store he went
Ordered a bright new red corvette
Found his wife diamond ring, real big
Seven carrots, fit for a queen

More on layaway, kids need shoes
Soon he spent all of his money
He didn't have a thing to show
Worse yet, rich uncles he had none

I am linked with Margaret at the Real Toads, Play it Again, Toads! #16
and with  NaPoWriMo 2015both for Day 26 of National Poem Writing Month

Margaret gave us three options to write using former prompt ideas.  I chose the 'fortune cookie' option, "Imagined by Ella - Fortune Cookies "

So funny and so true! Ha, Ha! Glad to see you participating in NaPoWriMo 2015 Jim! I have been trying to write or post a poem every day but it has been a busy month for me and I am just now trying to get caught up again! You are the first poet whose blog I have visited!
