Poster at work (we always sit next to it at lunch and talk property....) Tina Tower » An ode to Can – The Commonwealth Bank poem campaign This is basically the peom: There’s a four lettered word As offensive as any It holds back the few Puts a stop to the many. You can’t climb that mountain You can’t cross the sea You can’t become anything you want to be. He can’t hit a century They can’t find a cure. She can’t think about leaving or searching for more. Because can’t is a word with a habit of stopping The ebb and flow of ideas It keeps dropping itself where we know in our hearts it’s not needed And saying “don’t go” when we could have succeeded. But those four little letters That end with a T They can change in an instant When shortened to three. We can take off the T We can do it today We can move forward not back We can find our own way. We can build we can run We can follow the sun We can push we can pull We can say I’m someone Who refuses to believe That life can’t be better With the removal of one Insignificant letter.
