IF I COULD CHANGE THE WORLD
Get ready for the ride of a lifetime.
Don’t get it twisted, sit back, relax, stay calm, unwind,
trust and believe, all’s going to work out, all’s going to be fine.
Welcome to the “Time To Change The World” traveler’s guide,
where your safety, finance and peace of mind I hold with pride,
You’re guaranteed comfort right here on this slide;
determination by your demographics, religion or color of skin?
Not on this ride, all welcomed come on in.
Are you ready? Excited? Well let’s begin.
A wondrous world from the beginning to the very end.
Now this is more than just a proposition,
no longer a need for ammunition,
gun manufacturing an abomination,
a high priority is to save our nation.
Once gun factories are shut down,
farming communities would make the round,
for where these buildings once stood,
feeding the people would be the good.
Higher education about educating, teaching, serious learning, not the cost;
Walk the stage, new beginning, no burden of loans, not a loss.
Not to repeat the past learn from it, for it is our history;
That deep rooted Women’s inferiority complex will not be
The Black Man slave mentality no longer his-story;
The White Man superiority complex barely a memory.
The word free goes back to it’s original meaning
Not like in today’s commercials, “try it for free” shipping and handling intervening.
The new mentality is “Love Of One Nation, One World”
this goes out for every man, woman, boy and girl
Each and every family is guaranteed a home
Be it a family of ten or a family of just one alone.
Cost of living is an affordable scale as it should be
Housing, food, clothes, jobs of which there are plenty;
set up and maintained for the many, being denied life’s essentials there won’t be any.
