I wish, Okay? [a #poem]

I wish, Okay?
(c) Menachem Creditor
I wish...
I wish Syrians would stop killing each other.
I wish ice cream were good for me.
I wish 9/11 never happened.
I wish Josiah Bartlet were real.
I wish laughter were louder.
I wish flowers could stop us when we pass them by.
I wish painful lessons could be a little less painful.
I wish we would turn golf courses into free public housing.
I wish Sesame Street were still on PBS.
(Did I mention that thing about Bartlet? Okay.)
I wish for one wish.
Per person.
(Okay?)
