In a perfect world

“Look I wouldn’t have done It like that, if I was you”.
“Oh I am sorry Pete, but in a perfect world”.
My mind starts to wander, “ a perfect world”.
Visions of blue skies, a gently burbling stream, green meadows, shady trees.
A few rabbits eating undisturbed, birds flying freely in the gentle breeze.
Ah! to be able to touch the sun.
Butterflies wafting in the crisp morning air, landing on perfectly formed flowers.
All this backed by snow covered mountains.

The garden of Eden! And there she is, like a Scandinavian princess, in all her glory.
Resting under a tree, cooling her feet in the cool crystal waters of a small lake.
Her beautiful blond hair draping over her round ivory shoulders.

“Excuse me, should you be looking at me!”
“Well no miss, I was just pondering my idea of a perfect would”.
“Ha! in a perfect world, I would have a beautiful fur coat, covering my cold shoulders, and keeping me warm in my exquisite satin dress, as I partner the prince of this glorious domain, to the grand ball of all the kings, and queens, in the kingdoms of the known world. But alas, my prince is off on a raiding party, to rape and pillage in another land. He has assured me that he will keep his heart pure, as he gathers up treasures for our Kingdom. He also assures me, he will bring back a fine maiden to be my own personal servant. Oh, I do hope he is ok”.

“Oh, and he will bring back many slaves, so our kingdom can grow strong and prosper”.
The wedding is going to be a grand affair, surely to be blessed. And all the kingdoms will admire, and in time bow down before us. Firstly for the pure love we have for each other, and then as our kingdom grows, we and our allies will surely to be the fear of every nation.”

“Sorry to have disturbed you miss, I must get back to my work” now,
“Ah Jimmy that’s fine, the way your doing that, I can see now that my way, may not have been the best, keep up the good work, and if you have any other ideas in the future, be sure and run them by me, I’ll be sure to let the boss know”.
