How silly is Triskaidekaphobia?

It’s only a number, after all

Even the Roman’s chose the fifteenth

Twas when Caesar took his final fall

So why do we associate thirteen

With ladders, cracks and black cats?

Is it just another mischievous way

To scare others into thinking that

Something terrible will surely happen

If they pay no heed, to the supposed curse

We’ll let them think it’s just another day

But we know it to be much worse
