I Would If I Could

I would if I could
But I can’t so I shan’t
How good if I should
But I can’t which I grant
If I could I know I would
But I can’t so I shan’t
Oh how good if I should
But I chant I can’t, I can’t

About the Poem

My first school had the motto 'I am, I can, I will', while Paul's school no doubt had the motto 'I can't, So I shan't.'
