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’

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.

  1. It’s an original. By the way, I’m not sure about this, but am I the only person in 5th grade that has passed the mark of 300 visits?
