Watching and Waving

My crystal ball flashes bad’s to happen.

I’m to the ready, ever alert.

My magic wand blockades hate, pain, mistrust.

I control the world with my orb and wave:

Sick children healed,

Bombs stopped.

Evil people mend and change.

Ever diligent, I watch, then wave.

A world at peace—livable—paradise.
