If I Were In Charge Of The World

If I were in charge of the world
I'd cancel oatmeal,
Monday mornings,
Allergy shots, and also Sara Steinberg.

If I were in charge of the world
There'd be brighter nights lights,
Healthier hamsters, and
Basketball baskets forty eight inches lower.

If I were in charge of the world
You wouldn't have lonely.
You wouldn't have clean.
You wouldn't have bedtimes.
Or "Don't punch your sister."
You wouldn't even have sisters.

If I were in charge of the world
A chocolate sundae with whipped cream and nuts would be a vegetable
All 007 movies would be G,
And a person who sometimes forgot to brush,
And sometimes forgot to flush,
Would still be allowed to be
In charge of the world.

That was a fun read! ! ! Enjoyable, light, and effervescent!
If I were in charge of the world, I would cancel all hunger around the world, let everyone have equal rights, I'd help the poor around the world, and help prevent fights. I would cancel smoking, and all bad drugs. I would build more hospitals around the world, and help the elderly with their lives. I would help make better weapons for the military, with better ammo, I want to make the world a better place, and make everyone happy.
