Calm High

A thought has come to my head. It woke me up, got me out of bed. It's called Calm High.

It will be a chapter in my fourth novel, titled policies.

A student interprets a poem a certain way, and as a result, he has to join the "time out" march outside.

They march students on a track. But, every ten steps, they take one step backwards. And, ten steps after that, they all kneel, and stand up again. This forces the student to count their steps.

Just picture what it would do to your thought process, if you marched for a few hours, with nothing in your head but the counting of paces.

I know this doesn't concern Ray much, but there's a lot of heavy readers on this forum. Besides, I know Ray apreciates the creation of literature.

Does anyone here know a famous poem, that superficically praises the United States, but the real meaning is one of condemnation?

Well, Bruce Springsteen did a protest song in which the only intelligible words are "Born in the U. S. A.," which many people, I believe including the first President Bush, mistook for a paeon of praise to his native land.
