What If...

What If...

A couple of robins were billing cooing and stuff in my backyard tree

And I thought to myself what if humans had no qualms

About exhibiting ourselves making love anywhere, any time

Whenever the urge presented itself...

The earth's population would balloon from 7.7 billion to 15.4 billion

It would be the happiest world since the dark age

People wouldn't be able to stop grinning

There'd be singing and dancing in the streets and there'd be a law

That if you stopped grinning you would be placed behind bars

For 3 years, with very little food and water

You would be subjected to a daily beating every morning at 5 a.m.

Just in case you misbehaved later on during the day

Well let's, just for the sake of argument, this actually happened???
