Mrs Misrule

If I ruled the world, we'd be in a mess, How we'd survive is anyone's guess, Given my lack of common sense, I shudder to think of national defence, I haven't the faintest idea about finance, The economy wouldn't stand a chance, My technological know-how is nil, I'd have schools using the blackboard still, I have absolutely no friends in high places, I can never remember names or faces - Of course, I'd like to get rid of war, And banish gun-toting rednecks offshore, I imagine my ideology Would be centred around ecology, I'd want to get people off the street, And make sure all had enough to eat, If ever as ruler I was let loose, I'd deal with the issue of child abuse, As for domestic violence, No one would have to suffer in silence, Oh yes, I have plenty of ideas On how I would run the place, my dears, But the world must have its Right and Left teams, It cannot be run on impossible dreams. 11 August 2020 "If I Ruled The World" C. A. Cooke
