If I Was President Of The U.S.A.


If I was president of the U.S.A
I'd bring back all the troops,
Throw the nuclear bombs away.
I would invest in solar power,
For our electricity,
And wind turbines you would see,
Waving galiently.
Our cars would be electric,
Powered by battery.
We'd plug them in at night,
To regain their energy.
I would gather the world leaders,
Around the peace table,
Even the Taleban,
If we were able.
Countries that are ravaged,
By drought and poverty,
We could use our technology,
To desalinate the sea.
Irrigation then would follow,
To grow crops and feed the cattle,
Hunger would have to flee.
It's never going To happen.
I hear you say,
But I can dream at night,
Trying to put things right.
But we can all lead a better life,
Putting others first,
Taking no-ones life
Giving to the poor
To end poverty and strife.
Then the world will be
A better place.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
