Katelyn Steidle

Rookie (Redwood city)

If I Were In Charge Of The World

If I Were in Charge of the World

If I were in charge of the world
I'd cancel bad grades,
Ugly clothes and
Monday Mornings,

If I were in charge of the world
There would be NO reports,
More fashion clothes, and
More candy.

If I were in charge of the world
You wouldn't have cigarettes,
You wouldn't have social studies,
You wouldn't have homework,
Or 'No Talking.'
You wouldn't even have tests.

If I were in charge of the world,
I piece of chocolate would be a vegetable,
All Pirates of the Caribbean Movies would be rated G.
And a Person who forgot to leap,
And sometimes forgets to eat
Would still be allowed to be
In charge of the world.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
