If I Were President

If I were president here's what I would do
Make drugs legal and the drinking age 18 too
I would get out of Afghanistan and Iraq
I would give the Iraqis their oil back
It would be legal to not wear a seatbelt across my pants
I would make it legal to not have car insurance
People could talk on cell phones in their cars without a fine
I would get rid of income tax so I could go out and dine
My stance on abortion would be it's none of the government's business
My stance on guns would be keep them locked up so noone makes a mess
I would pay back the national debt and get rid of the federal reserve
A bright future without their parent's debt is what kids deserve
I would stop bullying at school
I would make it legal again to teach the golden rule
There would be prayer in school
I would make Halloween a legal holiday for kids to rule
Even adults could dress up and look like a fool
So listen clear to what I say
I would do all of that on the first day

Just having more fun with the election and what fun it would be to be in charge and actually have some power to do good, or at least do what I feel is good.

Hi, mcradloff,
FIrst, let me say, I enjoyed reading your poem. I would do all of that on the first day ...Oh, no, democracy and separation-of-church-and-state get felled in one poem, on one day. Well, I guess, that could happen if you were elected dictator and those troops you brought home were used against US citizens. Private prayer can happen any and everywhere, now - even in schools. To insist on public prayer in schools, however, one must be ready, willing and able to accept the prayer and practice of another's religion when their religion, not yours, is in the majority. Thanks for sharing both profoundness and humor in your poem.

ganondorf, thanks for the comment. All drugs would be legal, making drugs illegal is just another excuse for the government to steal freedom and money from people. I'm not big on immigration right now, but I'd let a few come over, and you would make the cut.peace cheers smoking jackolantern
mcradloff
Ladybee42, thanks for your comment. Yes, all the free beer and chips you could eat plus we'll make tv free again like it was when I was growing up.peace cheers jackolantern
