I would like to be a bad witch (or wizard) because…
I could do what I want.
I would be my own boss.
I could do things my own way
Because I could have a secret lair
with hostages and slaves
I would wear black.
I could have a black cat
I could have weird pets
I could live in unusual places.
I wouldn’t have to be nice to people.
I could zap people into whatever I want.
I could change the rules
and destroy pop music.
I could turn the world into a desert
and blow up the school.
I could stop all the fun subjects in school.
I could put a stop to homework
I could banish cheese sauce
and long queues for water slides.
I could steal Christmas,
or turn snow into ice.
I could practice my evil laugh:
he! he! he!
I would find it hard to be bad:
at a funeral, a wedding,
football or rugby training
on my birthday
When someone gives me a hug
or a present
or boosts my confidence.
