If I ruled the whole world,
I would have Covid hurled
From all the four continents
And boost our own confidence,
And pack the leading politicos,
Who sat polishing their toes,
To an asylum to count stars
And sling their hearts at Mars;
I’d sit with you in my royal court
And have fun of their frantic sport.
Then I would gather all money
And give equally to each bunny,
And command all men to learn
To refine love in a poetry firm,
To spray love on withering plants,
And duly attend to innocent ants.
Finally, I’d crown my starry girl
And cradle her as a divine pearl.
