Gender Bender


Gender Bender

Mikey wanted to take ballet.
Janey wanted to run track.
Bobby wanted to knit pretty sweaters.
Pam wanted to play quarterback.

But Mike grew up to be a runner
and Jane grew up to dance.
Bill became a football star
and Pamela mends pants.

It's such a shame that none of them
do what they want to do.
Don't follow in their footsteps;
carve a path that's right for you.

to represent any or all of the stories and poems
in "A Pocketful of Rhymes".
If you know anyone that can help, or have comments,
please e-mail me.Thanks!
