If I could change the world (Mikey's year 6 speech for tomorrow)
I wonder what I would do if I could change the world. Would I stop world hunger, make world peace, or something different altogether? Well…I’d prefer to combine all three.
Most people think world peace is a great idea. I agree, but I like to take it up a notch.
Guns will turn into carrots as soon as they are fired.
Grenades turn into apples just before the explosion.
Bombs turn into watermelons just before impact.
This is just the first dish I’m thinking of serving.
The nuclear reactors in the USA would turn into giant tubes of tomato sauce.
All the Middle eastern tanks would turn to bread, that roll into circle bases.
The landmines in Pakistan would turn into jalapenos as soon as they are activated.
All the German air force would be in trouble, because as soon as the planes took off, they became anchovies.
Aussie Missile Jeeps would turn into pineapples and their missiles would turn into sausages.
The swords of the Japanese samurai would turn into long, juicy spears of capsicum.
All of the bricks on the military walls throughout the world would start turning into olives, making the walls collapse.
All of the Russian submarines would turn into fried chicken.
All remaining military supplies would be turned into shredded cheese to top it all off.
Think about that! Once all the weapons and military supplies were turned into food, no one in Africa would be starving anymore! And when there are no more weapons, the entire world is at peace! But that isn’t where my story ends…
Once everyone realizes what has happened, they will bring all the food bits to the middle-east and store them in large metal containers.
As I said earlier, Most people think world peace is a great idea. And yes, I do like to take it up a notch. Some of you may know what this was all leading up to, others won’t. But at the end of the day, the entire world would come together not only to make world peace, oh no, they would come together to make world pizza!
Thank you for listening to my speech and I hope you enjoyed it.
