I will not play at tug o' war.I'd rather play at hug o' war,Where everyone hugsInstead of tugs,Where everyone gigglesAnd rolls on the rug,Where everyone kisses,And everyone grins,And everyone cuddles,And everyone wins.
By Shel Silverstein
I think that it is a good poem. Its about someone wanting hugs instead of tugging on a rope.
