If I could have had a womb with a view,
A small, tiny window that I could look through
To get a wee glimpse of the world I would know
Would I be excited or not want to go?

If I had a preview of what lay in store
The moment one passes through Life's opened door
Would I be content to be pulled out with pride
Or consider it best to have just stayed inside?

Would I have come willing, so eager to see
The wonderful world waiting out there for me
Or would every soul in the ward hear me shout
"Forget it, you people! I ain't coming out!!!"

Balladeer~
You are just so clever.
Where on earth did this one come from?

Welcome, sir.
We reserved you a womb with a view.
You can look out and decide what to do.
To boldly go where others have gone
or stay here and enjoy it all alone.

It's fitted with amenities galore
You will enjoy it that's for sure.
Your own private pool where you can wait
before deciding your very own fate.

If you like the view out the window you see,
we'll arrange a special delivery.
The men in white coats will take you away
If you like what you see,
you won't have to stay.

But just remember as you exit this womb
There's no coming back whenever there's gloom.
You're stuck with the choice should you go
There's no coming back ... don't ya' know.

Oh, yes,
there's one other thing.
Which credit card
will you be charging?

Love ya'
~*Marge*~

When I first saw the title, I thought of Elmer Fudd.  
I see now that you did mean "womb"  
I like this one!

Sir Balladeer, If you had decided not to join the world think how much fun you would have missed out on, along with all the people you poke fun with, and all the fun in general, and God forsake don't forget the Golfing...LOL
