Radio Poets 2018: Ilyas Abolcader, "When I'm King"

Ilyas Abolcader, a student at E R Taylor School

When I'm King

By Ilyas Abdolcader, E.R. Taylor Elementary School

I'll be staring down at my town

While wearing my beautiful crown

Humble will be our game

Our town will have no shame

We'll have nothing sloppy

I make negative things things not exist

No homeless on our list

My queen will rule the land

With her warm soft hand

She will impress me like no other

Time will not be wasted

I will have my peoples food delicately tasted

I will  gather fresh water from the river

And make nice ice that will make people shiver

Nature will satisfy our needs

(music: "The Sun Smells Too Loud", by Mogwai)
