Beggars Would Ride

How I wish I could be Someone other than me, Someone whose name Has won lasting acclaim, A person whose presence Could make a big difference, One with the authority To sway the majority, Whose political protest Would generate interest, A woman so wise That her words magnetise, Whose outstanding beauty Enhances her duty, Whose passionate voice Is the envoy of choice, A woman to lead The next people's stampede To wrest power and might From the grip of the Right.... But I'm not!
