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.

Good job on your awesome poems!
Wow! Noise!
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.

A beautiful wish and it's equally beautiful desired aftermath. A pleasure to read.
I love her ideas, especially the thing about the chocolate sundae being a vegetable! Nevertheless, I'm glad she isn't in charge of the world. It would be a delightfully strange mess lol. All the same I much enjoyed this poem! ~~
