Response 4: If I ruled the world...


If I ruled the world, everyday would be the first day of spring
Every heart would have a new song to sing
3 day weekends the joy they would bring. 

Olives would be a thing that is banned
Spitting boys and scaly girls who are faked tanned
Replaced by the secure feeling of holding your mum's hand. 

There would be free love and be free as a bird
Every voice would be a voice to be heard
Its law to treasure each day as it occurred

But I don’t rule this land
My mum isn’t there to hold my hand
The only chance of changing things was if I was Bono and I was in a band. 

This planet is too big for one person to rule
We’re obsessed with ruling land and fuel
Only by working together we can make this rock a Jewel

So I don’t rule worlds
