My 6th grade poem

I play it cool
And dig all jive.
That’s the reason
I stay alive.
My motto,
As I live and learn,
is: Dig And Be Dug
In Return.
-Langston Hughes
My 6th grade teacher Mr. Gould made me memorize this because I would not memorize any other poem and it was required. I remembered it throughout my life.
