I Stood In Line

Rating: 5.0


November 4th 2008
United States Presidential Elections



I stood in line
To have my teeth examined
I stood in line
While my chains were locked
I stood in line
For a bowl of soup
I stood in line
With no poll tax
I stood in line
To board the bus
I stood in line
To face the water cannon
I stood in line
To speak, to be heard
I stood in line
To be listened to
This day
I stood in line
Proudly stood in the line

The old rush and wait, like in the army. A good pint time

Short, sharp and well honed lines here Martin - and comes over very loud and clear as political allegiance - or then again, I may be wrong. However the piece is strikingly written, and good.
