If I Were President… – by Juliana Foley with art by Alexia Sambrano

i too am America

i too am America

i too am America

Have you ever stopped to think and wonder
What life would be like if you took over?
Would there be endless change in sight?
Or would it remain the same both day and night?

Would you make all health care free
Allowing people to pay no fees?
Or would you tax that 1% more money?
Although, to them, it’s not funny.

Would you lower the cost of college tuition
To give students the opportunity to complete their mission?
Or would you make it easier for immigrants to work
To support their families and to put on a smirk?

i too am America

i too am America

i too am America

Would you put those in jail who commit serious crimes,
And educate the ones who don’t need to do hard time?
Or would you reduce the percentage of homelessness,
In order to create less woefulness?

If I were president, I would.
