If I were in charge of the world I’d cancel
poverty, pain and also chaos
If I were in charge of the world there would be
equality for all, love everywhere,
and recognition of the arts.
If I were in charge of the world you wouldn’t have
segregation. You wouldn’t have
discrimination. You wouldn’t have violence,
or “just another black child lost to the system.”
You wouldn’t even have a system.
If I were in charge of the world strawberry
and vanilla ice cream would be a vegetable.
All stuffed animals would come to life,
and a person who sometimes forgot to think
before they reacted, would still be allowed
to be in charge of the world
