A 3rd-grade teacher always took roll call each morning and had the pupils’ answer by reciting a short poem.
The first kid who sat in the first row was a teacher’s pet.
He stood and said,
“My name is Dan, and when I become a man, I would like to go to Japan if I can, and I think I can.”
The next kid was a little girl who sat in the middle of the room.
She stood up and answered the roll call by stating,
“My name is Suzy, and when I become a lady I would like to have a baby … if I can, and I think I can.”
The next on the list was Little Johnny, a smart guy sitting in the back of the room.
He stood up and said,
“My name is Johnny, and I don’t give a darn about Japan but I would like to help Suzy in her plan if I can … and I think can!”
