The Little Engine

A delightful children’s story tells of a little blue engine who looked at his impossible task of pulling a train up a steep hill and said, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.” Filled with determination, the little blue engine huffed and puffed and pulled up the hill. But in an amusing twist to the original story, another author wrote:

He was almost there, when —
CRASH! SMASH! BASH!
He slid down and mashed into engine hash.
On the rocks below…
which goes to show
If the track is tough and the hill is rough
THINKING you can ain’t enough.
