  1. In second grade the poem I wrote for our poetry unit was published in The Peanut Butter Press.
  2. (That was a local Indiana newspaper distributed at elementary schools.)
  3. It was my proudest moment.
  4. My mother told me how impressed she was.
  5. My teacher read it to the class.
  6. It was such a powerful moment that I still remember the poem word for word.
  7. Here it is:

  9. Basketball is fun
  10. It's fun for everyone
  11. You take a shot
  12. It goes through the hoop
  13. That's two points for you!
  14. 🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀
  15. Yeah I know it's terrible.
  16. I didn't even play basketball.
  17. But it was Indiana.
  18. I think I was pandering to my audience.
