Down on your luck
No lucky charms
No four leaf clover
To ward off the storm.

No voodoo or magic
No tricks up your sleeve
No winning ticket
For the lottery.

Your number is up
The due date is here
There’s no way out
The outcome is clear.

You ran out of excuses
You ran out of steam
You blew all your chances
Of fulfilling your dreams.

Step to the back
To the back of the line
You’re being passed over
You’ve run out of time.
