If Life Was Like A Musical

What if life was like a musical,

We sang and danced all day.

Sing like Mary Poppins did,

Practically perfect in every way!


No stress in go slow traffic queues,

If we sang to drown our moans.

Songs played from in-car stereos,

In harmony our tuneful tones.


As we wait in traffic standstills,

We get out and dance around.

Like in the film La La Land,

We would soon attract a crowd.


In classrooms children doing sums,

Burst into many songs.

Times tables like they used to be,

Learnt through sing-a-longs


Trips to the local supermarket,

Wouldn’t be such a chore.

If we sang and danced along the aisles,

Whilst we were in the store.


Tap dancing on the desktops,

To tunes from office PCs.

Factory workers on their lines,

Belt out their harmonies.


“All operators are busy at present”,

As the music starts to play.

On speaker phones we get to share,

The call dance for the day.


Then there are those in Parliament,

Who think they know it all.

Make a song and dance from everything,

Whilst in Westminster Hall.


Imagine how different life would be,

Come rain, wind, snow or sun.

If we lived just like a musical,

Wouldn’t life be so much fun!

About the Creator

Hazel Rymell

..Suddenly I crash back down to earth with a big almighty bump!

...when not in a dolly daydream, creative me is at home in the UK doing the normal everyday mundane jobs, that seem to go on forever...until the daydreaming kicks in again...
