If I Could Change The World

If I could change the world I’d do religion in,
And all that’s altruistic I would make a sin.
If I could change the world I’d change all governments
To rights protecting bodies of rational good sense.
There’d not be thugs “competing” for a throne of power,
Nor angry men, “smart” women, who think life is sour;
There’d be no sly manipulation with daft-craft lies,
But the honest exaltation of the great and wise.
If I could change the world I’d put self on top,
Where all ideas selfless would stop and drop.
And most of all, and everywhere, blaze high this rule:
Initiating force is evil, coarse and cruel,
A thing that’s banned and damned, and hammered underground,
Till peace on earth increases and is all where found!
