If I had...

This week's Carry on Tuesday prompt is to use the first line of a song by Clifford T Ward, "I could be a millionaire if I had the money" My little poem is as opposite as imaginable from the subject of the song. ;)

I could be a millionaire

If I had the money.

I could feed a million bears

If I had the honey.

I could get a lovely tan

If the sky was sunny.

I could be a circus clown

If I knew how to be funny.

But since there is no money,

I'll be rich in other ways,

And since I have no honey,

Bears will hunt throughout the day.

And since the skies aren't sunny,

I'll grab tanner from the shelf,

And since I'm not so funny,

I'll write rhymes to cheer myself!


  1. Made me cheer up too! Nice write.

  2. Lovely! Thanks for this sunny, cheerful use of this prompt...brought a smile to my face. Have a great week!
