Fact or Fiction

Fact or Fiction

A Poem by storiestotell

Knock on wood twice.

Cross your fingers.

Say a prayer,

read on if you dare.


13 a symbol of death.

Judas, 13th guest at the last super.

It is said Christ was crucified this day.

The devil's day,

stay home or beware!


Black cats are mysterious.

Witches companion are they.

Stay clear and cross not their path,

or bad luck will follow you.


Open ladder makes a triangle shape.

Walking under, tempting fate,

evil spirits you'll awake.


Broken mirror on the floor.

Reflection all in pieces,

actual soul releases.

7 years bad luck you must endure


Protection from the sun umbrellas can do,

and keep you dry when rain arrives.

Open inside death you'll find.


Spilt salt, many grains,

alot of tears will be shed.

Misfortune will happen,

but something you can do.

Quickly throw some over your

left shoulder to ward evil away.


Bad luck happens,

but good luck can too.

Heres a list to help you!


Horse shoes are a lucky symbol

                    Rabbit's foot in left back pocket

              Four leaf clover

   Coin found on heads

          Itchy left plam will bring you money


Are all these myths?

Or mystical wanders waiting to happen?


Just in case I quote.......

Star light star bright

First star Iv'e seen tonight

I wish I may I wish I might

have this wish I wish tonight

Author's Note

Tell me what you think! Just something fun to write about, but not sure if it's written well. I wrote and rewrote it, so you tell me about it! For the record I don't believe any of this . I just wanted to write about it!

Yes, your writing is perfect and you covered the subject well. I try not to tempt bad luck, but neither do I go around purposely trying to ward it off.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. A pleasant, lighthearted write which dived straight into the world of the heebie-jeebies. There were some parts that brought a smile to my face, other parts where I laughed, then times when I got brief chills. I have tripped over black cats, strolled right under ladders, dropped mirrors with my butter-fingers. I have done every thing that I shouldn't and yet I am alive, unscathed and roaring for another round. I guess I got Someone looking out for me.:) I loved this. And by the way it was perfectly written and ended.

The paragraph about umbrellas, the word 'fine' should be 'find'.

Other than that, it's cool...

This is delightful and fun! Who knows if they're fact or fiction but they sure to tempt us to try them and to believe. We want the good luck and to ward off the bad luck,
