A third grade teacher always took roll call each
morning and had the learners answer by reciting a short
poem.

The first kid sat in the first row was a teacher's
pet. He stood and said, "My name is David, 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, sitting in the
back of the room. He stood up and said, "My name is
Johnny, and I don't give a dam about Japan but I
would like to help Suzy in her plan if I can and I
think I can!"
