I Would If I Could - Poem by David Darbyshire

I Would stop the world Turning,
If I Could
Just to make the People,
Stop and Think

I Would run all the Rivers and Lakes Dry,
If I Could
Just to make the People Think
That water is a precious Drink

If you Could
What Would you Do?
Stop and Think?
Or have a Drink?

    what a wonderful power you seek
    to help all humans
    but alas!
    we can only do what we can do
    a fine poem
