I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I possessed the eyes of
truth,
Able to judiciously discriminate between; the good and obnoxiously evil inhabiting remote corners of the globe.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I possessed egalitarian
arms,
Ready to embrace those in severe affliction; without the baseless fear of
getting stained and dirty.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I possessed the power of
mystical clairvoyance,
Able to prognosticate the ominous events to unveil; saving the earth from
possible disaster.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I possessed a phlegmatic
voice,
Capable of pacifying those engulfed with inexplicable distress; put all children without parents to sleep.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I could leap from
astronomical heights of the bridge into the river,
Save scores of innocuous children from drowning; embed their terrorized faces
with mischievous smiles.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I possessed feet which
could withstand the most onerous of load,
Carry the ones crippled; making them witness the most mesmerizing avenues of
the world.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I possessed clusters of
teeth capable of extracting venom;
Evacuating the most lethal of poison from the body of the dying; rejuvenating
them with fresh doors of hope.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I possessed the prowess
of assassinate the most evanescent of corruption prevailing,
Liberating the impoverished from impregnable clutches of slavery; granting
them the supreme distinction of breathing free air.

I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I could stay awake all
night;
Incessantly guarding those who were philanthropic; ever ready to propagate the
benevolent cause of humanity.

And I would consider myself the richest man on earth; if I could possess and
incarcerate the love I so vehemently desired,
Help all residing on land; to get the dream partner of their own choice.
