Who To Be This Year


Dog off the lap
A dart and map
Like a balloon caught in the winds flow
Suitcase in hand
Where will I land
When a postcard arrives you will know


Travel to far away lands
Offering a helping hand
To the poor and the sick and oppressed
Not offering a dish
But teaching to fish
This old ideology is still the best


Cash burning a hole
In a pocket I’m told
Is to have a disposable income at hand
As Gatsby had it
I too would commit
To soirees weekly with a jazz band


To supersede the way
The world works today
An entirely impossible feat
History is quite telling
With wars and rebelling
Leaders change but the wrongs don’t retreat


Who I was before
While a bit of a bore
It’s who I will stay for now
A working mother
Of whom like many others
Daydreams will suffice somehow

If you could spend the next year as someone radically different from the current “you” — a member of a different species, someone from a different gender or generation, etc. — who would you choose to be?
