Could of been a Doctor...well maybe a bell hop
Instead of being stuck with this pail and mop
Could of been a artist...maybe a swinger
Instead here I sit sewing on this old singer
Could of been a model perhaps a millionaire
Instead of hanging these clothes out in the air
What I could of done when I was young back then
Instead here I am... growing old and thin
Never got to grab the brass ring
Didn't even see the darn thing
Standing at the sink doing these dishes
Oh where's my fairy god-mother who grants wishes?
Gonna be a gypsy travel the roads
Don't give a hang about all these loads
Gonna see things I've never seen
Before the good Lord calls out... Geraldine

a little bit country
I would have to say this poem put me in mind of old Hank Williams songs, and my grandma hanging clothes on the line in the back forty. All you need is a proper twang and a chorus and you'd have yourself a country song. Cute work here. I especially liked the lines about the brass ring.
