NaPoWriMo Poem #10

Sweet Dream of Aphrodite
By Edward S. Gault.

I had this dream last night
That I won the state lottery.
I bought a sixty room mansion,
That had a garden and a pool.
I had my own jet and a yacht
That brought me all over the world.
I went to parties
And cut the ribbons at celebrations.
One afternoon as I sat reclined on my yacht,
Reflecting on all the good that Fortune brought;
I saw a vision of sweet Aphrodite
In all her glorious majesty,
Coming straight toward me!
At that point, I felt a tugging
At my arm-
My four year old said:
Papa, I have to use the potty!
