Wishful Thinking

In my life I would like to see
A better design for the bumble bee
A shape more aerodynamic,
And a sound that doesn't cause instant panic

I'd like to see before I go,
A real life actual U.F.O.
I want the view from my room
To be the surface of the moon

I'd like to see a situation that
Nothing I eat will make me fat
I'd like to grow gracefully old,
Without my belly going over in folds

I'd really like to see in my life,
A lot more honour, and a lot less strife
criminal sentencing with less latitude
A lot less griping, and a lot more gratitude

 

The End
