And I wondered what if…

Samantha Smith hadn’t died.

The child superstar no one seems to remember…

Wise,

with spunk,

she changed lives.

And while many mourn Hillary’s demise,

I wonder what if Samantha Smith had become

President of the USA.

Who she was and would have been, today.

And how much better the world would be.

But,

alas…

In “reality”,

sadly, very sadly,

I imagine the system would have molded

and stymied her into

another pathetic,

grasping,

power-maximizing,

political drone.

Disenchanted,

once again,

I curl into the foetal position

on my pathetically anemic,

uncomfortable

bed.

Reality is hard.

I wish for sleep,

alternative

actuality.
