My take on the poem If I Were in Charge of the World by Judith Viorst

If I were in charge of the world,
I'd cancel profanity,
Rape,
Rejection,
Materialism, and also stereotypes.

If I were in charge of the world,
There'd be the option to be in charge of the universe,
Children's public education based on scientific 
 studies (which it is currently not),
More respect to differences,
A free order of reversible stuffed animals for everyone,
More good influences, and
Elegant Victorian-style libraries on every block. 83 more words
