If We’re Lucky

By, Jannet Rivas

 

What do you do?

He asks,

Trying to find some common ground

What drives you?

 

Isn’t the human race lovely?

I mean, yes

We shoot guns and highjack planes

But then we come home

Turn on the TV

Heat up a hot pocket

 

And if we’re lucky,

We get to fall in love.

 

If We’re Lucky

 

What do you want?

He asks,

Looking for some common ground

What’s driving you?

 

Isn’t the human race lovely?

I mean yes

We shoot guns and highjack planes

But then we come home

Turn on the TV

Heat up a hot pocket

 

And if we’re lucky,

We even fall in love.
