If Only …

by Rohit Sahasrabuddhe

If only I were Peter Pan:

I would fly the skies of Never Land;

Live with John, Michael, Wendy and the rest;

And defeat that crook,

Captain Hook!

If only I were Harry Potter:

I’d turn Voldemort into an otter;

We’d do wonders together, my wand and I;

And no one would dare

Mess with this pair!

If only I were Phileas Fogg:

I’d go round the world, at a jog;

Travel to US, Germany, Switzerland, Japan;

And back to my home land,

Darkly tanned!

If only I were Captain Nemo:

I’d rule the seas-–high and low;

Unleashing a reign of terror;

Sinking ships

With one command from my lips!

If only I were Tom Sawyer:

Called to court by Muff’s lawyer,

I’d be a pirate for a few days;

And in a gale,

Set off to sail!

If only, if only, if only

This were really, really true,

The last thing I’d be doing

Is writing this poem

Out for you!
