If I had a remote control
I’d fast forward through life
avoiding all sorrow and droll

slicing away bad mojo with a knife
cherry picking only good moments
whizzing past all manner of strife

making my own jigsaw components
living in a world of my fantasy-grande
rearranging life pieces for my enjoyment

ensconced in my very own cuckoo land
it would be the one and only goal
on my terms, in my own hands

Ah! Would that I had a remote control
clicking past sorrow- whizzing past droll
