Push or Pull?

While reading through some 5th grader blogs I came across this poem. Not sure if it’s an original or if they copied it from somewhere although a quick Google search didn’t bring up anything. Anyway why is it when I read this I think education? I can’t get my front door to open, No matter how hard that I try. It never budges when I push, Please don’t ask me why. Not only have I pushed But I’ve pulled with all my might! Why won’t this stupid door open?! Why is it stuck so tight?! I’ve tried to blast it open, I conked it with a tree! I dragged the door with a strong rope But it wasn’t enough with just me! I pulled so hard that the doorknob flew off, And now it won’t stick back in. I pushed so hard that the door broke a hinge But the bad news will just begin! I think I sprained an ankle, And also broke an arm. These injuries were done by someone deadly –The door did all the harm! I think the door is broken, I think the suspect is me. The landlord’s going to break my bones, For that I guarantee! Maybe I locked the house, And then forgot the key, The landlord’s going to kick me out of town, I should move to Tennessee! Might I try to squeeze through the window? And make the door release? But someone might mistake me for a burglar, And then call the police! I’ll never be able to get home now, You should feel some pity. Maybe I’ll go into town And request for the door-fixing committee! I can’t get my front door to open, I’ve tried and tried and tried. Hey! What’s this label here? ‘Don’t PUSH nor PULL-just SLIDE’ From Blingading 5SH [tags]poem[/tags] Technorati Tags: poem,...
