A square was sitting quietly
Outside his rectangular shack
When a triangle came down-keerplunk!
And struck him in the back.
"I must go to the hospital,"
Cried the wounded square,
So a passing rolling circle
Picked him up and took him there.

- Students can work cooperatively with a parent or sibling to draw what they think the illustration looks like.
