I Wonder

Michael Walsh Poetry:


I wonder what would happen if a cow was born today,

That couldn’t stomach grass or stand the smell of hay,

A dog that hated walkies, a cat that couldn’t purr;

It’s best to go to sleep, my lad,

No point in going there.


I wonder what would happen to a bird that couldn’t fly,

A fish that couldn’t swim to save its life.

A tiger born with spots or a drama without plots,

A congressman who couldn’t deal with strife.


If politicians didn’t lie, if bankers never steal,

If rich men knew how much it hurts to be a down at heel,

Would the world be better if conscience ruled the man…

It’s best to go to sleep, my lad,

And do your dreaming there.
