If we were persons so smart

“There are no right answers to wrong questions.” Ursula K. Le Guin

If we were persons so smart

If we had the power

If we could empower

If we had an ivory tower

If we had this and if we had that!

Tis becoming old hat.

What would you say

What would you pay

What would I pay?

A mere pittance, not I

I would heed the call

I would give it my all

Whether big or small

I would keep my world

From a downward swirl

I would give from my heart

If I were a person so smart

What would you do?

It’s your world too.

-Eugenia

A gander at me – enjoying a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years, being rewarded both professionally and personally, I am now fulfilling my dreams. My writing and creative endeavors can be found on my blogs, Eugi’s Causerie and Eclectic Brew. I have authored eBooks Fanciful Delights, Mama, me, and Mother Nature, Life’s Spilled Coffee, and also have writings at Spillwords, PoetrySoup, beBee, and several Anthologies.

  1. If only we, the collective human race were so smart.

  2. Eugi, many who think they are smart are considering only their own benefit. It takes vision to work for the common good. This is a very thought-provoking and beautifully written poem. <3

  3. Yes the common good stands out as a cure-all that most interests me as well.
