Ode To Books

If you could go anywhere you care
Future, present or past
Would you really dare go there
Even though it couldn't last
And if you could be anyone
Just for a brief amount of time
Someone else's daughter or son
Would it be such a crime
Do you really believe me
That this is entirely true
Through the magic of words you see
I find this effortless to do
Maybe I've had a bad day
Or simply bored out of my mind
I love to slip into a world far away
