Big Ifs

If all the hungry
had all the food
they needed,
if all the sleepy
had cozy beds
and rooms to be sweet in,
if all the adventurous
could leave today,
and not worry about the cost,
if all the curious
had all the books
and the time to read them,
if all the exhaustion
came from carefree socializing,
if all the problems
came from something
the weather did
(as in, no one controls it),
if all the pools
were free and open
and clean and warm,
if all the beaches were
for all the people,
if all the medicine were like that too,
my god, we’d be living
in some sort of
near-perfect world.

If we could only
put our wants together
we could make the world
so much better.
