I want to be a PORTER – Poem for Children by CJ Dennis


THE PORTER (Evergreen Tales theme music playing.) 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? (Evergreen Tales theme music playing.)
