If I Ran The World

If I ran the
world, then
I'd like to say
that it would be
better.
This would be
a lie, though.
I would be a
dictator, ruining
everybody.
If I ran the
world, then
I'd like to say
that flowers and
sunshine would
dominate.
It's a lie, though,
for greed
and jealousy
and hate
flows thorugh my
veins, for I
am human
like everybody
else. I have my
faults, and I can
honestly say
the democracy
and fairness
and equality
should rule the world,
not a single human
who has emotions
like you or
me. If I ruled the
world, then I
would hate
my every fiber.
So I don't rule
this world.

Comments about If I Ran The World by Jenna Dandurand

    so true.

    i have often wondered what i would be like as a leader. I wonder if i could make the changes that i want without becoming a dictator - eg, tackling climate change, bring in wind power and close down Australia's yellow cake mines; all things that no one wants to have done, but are generally seen as something that needs to be done. I would allow more people into Australian (aslym seekers) , regardless of what the majority of Australians think.

    i love this
