 Make-believe

I love a little make-believe,

It goes a long, long, way,

10ml in the morning,

10ml end of day.
 

I make-believe that hunger,

Is something we can beat,

I make-believe the poor one day,

Will have enough to eat.

 

I make-believe that magic's real,

That a wand can at one stroke,

Turn bad to good, turn hate to love,

Turn water into Coke.

 

I make-believe the world will soon,

Become be a better place,

That war will end, my foe's my friend,

My enemy, my mate.

 

I make believe that make-believe,

May hide a grain of truth,

The heaven isn't just a place,

We make-believe in books.
