If Don Quixote had arrived into our day,
And, if he decided to live here, and stay,
He would carry a fishing rod, instead of a sword,
He’d ride on a motorcycle, and never be bored.
He’d be homeless, at times, and defend all his friends,
He’d be creatively “crazy,” and play randomly-unique, musical blends!
He’d love animals, dogs, cows, horses, and burros,
He’d stop bullies from bullying, and become everyone’s hero.
At times, he just sit back, and observe beauty in nature,
Use a camera to capture the world, and it’s creatures.
He’d be a hippie of sorts, with basic non-materialistic needs,
He’d encourage others away from selfishness, and greed.
He’d give away his last dollar,
Live quietly, and not holler.
His imperfections would be expressed with both humor and grace,
As he moves into our world, at his own, even pace,
Finding both pleasure and peace, in this high-tech human race.
