I could have been a movie star
I could have owned the fastest car
or run the longest race, by far,
from Bangalore to Bogota.
I could have been an astronaut,
or soldier proud who bravely fought;
a demon on the tennis court
or mastered chess, without a thought.
But none of this has come to head.
My aspirations all have fled,
to my regret, it must be said.
And so I’ll dream, once more – in bed!
