Forgive my feeble attempts to say
Words of wisdom on a gray rainy day
But attempt I will to surmise and display
For poetry helps keep our demons at bay

What if the world were pristine and clean?
What if kindness expunged all that was mean?
What if compassion enveloped us all?
What if we rose every time we did fall?

What if the dogs had the power to rule?
What if every child were blessed to attend school?
What if our leaders were all honest and true?
What if they truly cared about me and you?

What if all illness had a miraculous cure?
What if decisions we made were 100% sure?
What if “please” and “thank you” could once again reign?
What if sweet children would be exempt from all pain?

What if our waters were devoid of pollution?
What if common sense ruled every solution?
What if bigotry were a thing of the past?
What if our happiness could always last?

What if, what if………so many more to display!
But they must just remain………..for another rainy day.
