The Little Engine

Source unknown

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 &md;CRASH! SMASH! BASH! He slid down and mashed into engine hash. On the rocks below…which goes to showIf the track is tough and the hill is roughTHINKING you can ain't enough.
