swing
hank

my swing swings high,
 1
but sometimes i just sit.
 2
it's not rope but chains,
 3
with a rubber u.
 4
i'm not always pushed-
 5
i like to do it myself.
 6
and if you swing both legs
 7
you'll swing straight ,
 8
but if you swing one,
 9
you'll wobble.

doesn't really do or say anything original to me but how you swing on a swing and this most ppl already know.  sry.
Maybe if you took the first 2 lines and tell us why you just sit on the swing instead of swinging.  Or perhaps why you don't like to be pushed.
Just my humble opinion

Man, hank, I really like this--so simple, but there's a subtle metaphor here.

All true stuff. I like line 2 the best. Actually, sitting and twisting and tangling is a nice swing thing to do.
