Friday the 13th
moon hiding behind clouds
friday the 13th
fear of friday the 13th
you’ve got to be kidding
friday the 13th
or snare for cynics

Not only do I like the poem, but you also reminded me it was Friday The 13TH tommorow. Peace and Love.

Ha! I love this one Gabrielle … thank goodness I don’t live with a scary black cat, mine is a lovely shade of golden brown … so I should be safe right? 😉

haha – you will be fine Tracey (nothing bad happened yesterday – did it?)

I’m not worried at all…(stated as he tosses salt over his shoulder)…it’s just foolish superstitious..(said with his fingers crossed)…but really enjoyed your poem..(said in all honesty).
January 14, 2012 at 10:09 am
Bwhahahahaha – thanks slpmartin (she said while walking around the ladder 😉 )

😀 Love that phobia-name. How does one kick a phobia like that??
January 14, 2012 at 10:10 am
It’s virtually impossible Kate – haha – that is why the name is incomprehensible

I didn’t walk under any ladders at all yesterday and when I saw that black cat that lives down the road I walked the other way. I also carried some salt to throw over my shoulder in case I encountered anything resembling bad luck (not that I’m superstitious or anything…)
I rally love this poem, Gabe. It is so witty and clever. Is that the real name for the phobia? Whoever named it needs some help or maybe they’ve been cursed to speak in an indecipherable manner since that run in with the witch on Friday the 13th. You just never know, do you? *cue spooky pipe organ music now*

hahahaha – that is the real name Selma (if my friends google and wikipedia are correct) 🙂

Friday the 13th works it’s way around the planet. Is just settling into night now here and only a few black cat hours until the 14th, nice rounded-out, even number, that’s twice a lucky seven! But you Australians have already made that passage, under the ladder and swept up the broken mirror pieces into the dust bin, and wood knocked safe already.
January 14, 2012 at 12:20 pm
hahaha – yes, you are as usual one day behind (hope your Friday the 13th is uneventful Aletha) 😉

Love this Gabe… phobias have the most amazing names!!!
January 14, 2012 at 2:14 pm
They certainly do and there is an endless array of things people are scared of!
January 15, 2012 at 6:40 am
Haha – good one, Gabe. Whoever named the phobia was having a bit if fun at the phobics, I’m sure.
January 15, 2012 at 8:59 am
You’d have to be, wouldn’t you bb – it is the weirdest name I have ever come across.
January 16, 2012 at 8:55 pm
Bwahaha, lovely, Gabe!
