Ken e Hall

(Last Century / England-Now Australian Citizen)

If Mortal Hands Gave I The Power


If mortal hands gave I the power of the deepest oceans
My quest would strive to fill the world with love devotion’s,
The romantic legacy of the white crested waves would
Taint the rivers with magic potions,

Eagles would kiss rabbits as foxes danced with chickens
All dogs would wake with the Labrador’s gentle temperament
The lion king abdicates and all its kind would dine on the same as a cow
No more thieves and pickpockets often wrote about by Dickens.

Leaders of the pack would love each other just like brothers,
Bullets would change into jelly beans shells like chocolate would melt
Political leaders that rant in a rage would be put in their own little cage,
All soldiers would give three cheers and go home to their mothers,

The entire world hand in hand would live as one
Freedom and happiness for all, man would realy learn,
All religions are all the same, God can speak every language,
On earth as is in heaven they would be done,

    Soldiers back to mothers, wives and children.
    A telling line. Strange each one of us has peace
    in our power but most are unable to accept and
    actualize that fact. A great heartfelt write. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful notion of a world united in harmony and living in eternal brotherhood! How nice the world would have been if not torn by opposing ideologies and petty jealousies! ! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply

    Hello Ken! This is a very beautiful poem. If we all would
    come together as one this world would be a beautiful
    place to live in. Even the animals as you so well written about
    will dance with each other in harmony. Yes a world like this
    is possible for God initially made it to be that way. I enjoyed it
    immensely. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    What a wonderful idea. I think I would love to live in your world. I hope God reads this poem and gets the hint. Then if things start improving in the world, we'll have you to thank. Good job! (Report) Reply
