Our Not-So Perfect World

In a perfect world... Things won't break, Our clothes don't shrink, Bugs won't bite, And skunks don't stink. People never snore, They don't even sneeze; Ice cream never melts, And puddles don't freeze. There are no creepy crawlers, No slimy pets, No spooky sounds, No noisy jets. We never get dirty, We never get told, It's never too hot, It's never too cold. No one is shorter, No one is taller, Nothing is bigger, Nothing is smaller. In a perfect world... There's no fun at all. But in our not-so-perfect world, We always have a ball! by Ana Espinola Collins

I like this. Can you imagine - if everything was perfect, there would be a lot of people without a job. Thanks for sharing... Luycilla
