Free Hugs

Not much to share today. I’m way too tired, stressed, and lazy to prepare a thought provoking post. But I did come across one of my favorite childhood poems. And it’s just perfect for a manic Monday!

HUG O’WAR

FROM THE BOOK “WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS” (1974)

BY SHEL SILVERSTEIN

I will not play at tug o’war,

I’d rather play at hug o’war,

Where everyone hugs,

Instead of tugs,

Where everyone giggles,

And rolls on the rug,

Where everyone kisses,

And everyone grins,

And everyone cuddles,

And everyone wins.

Where even smelly little dogs get a hug, while the sweetie grins.
