Shake it Baby!

Shake it Baby!

By Askin Ozcan (Mentor)

SHAKE  IT  BABY  ! 

I want to shake the world,

with music and dance and laughter,

before a meteor or comet does it

with a clutter. 

I want to shake the world,

to awaken it from its ignorance,

before wars, crime, injustice

gutter the world for its floods and tears. 

I want to shake the world

to make the planets wonder:

“Hey! What’s happening to earth?”

And to make all the stars ponder. 

I want to shake the world

till no one is hungry, ill, depressed

and no one is pressed

to steal and lie.

Till no one is afraid to live, 

or to be born,

or to die.
