I recently started a creative writing course. For an activity, we had to come up with random titles. Someone came up with ‘I Would If I Were You’, which I have turned into a poem.
You might not want to eat an apple
In which you found a worm
The thought of eating a plate of dirt
May well make you squirm
Equally disgusting is the thought of eating glue
But all I can say is, “I would if I were you.”
Cheating on a big exam
Might not sound so nice
Or telling your friend to give you her money
Is not quite sound advice
Spinning around until you’re sick is
Not so good for you
But all I say is, “Why not? I would if I were you!”
Drawing on your brother’s face
While he’s sound asleep
Following a stranger through the streets
Acting like a creep
These are not the best ideas but if you’ve nothing to do
Don’t hesitate, and remember! I would if I were you.
