: A Book For Kids

I'd like to be a porter, and always on the run,

Calling out, "Stand aside!" and asking leave of none.

Shoving trucks on people's toes, and having splendid fun,

Slamming all the carriage doors and locking every one--

And, when they asked to be let in, I'd say, "It can't be done."

But I wouldn't be a porter if . . .

The luggage weighed a ton.

Would you?
