So one of my friends from high school reminded me of a funny story from back in the day. It was 1984 and I was a Freshman in AP English. I was a pretty average student...and when I say average I mean C+ at best, at least in English. One day the teacher gave us an assignment to write some poetry before the end of class. Me being a slacker I couldn't think of shit but being a Rush fanatic I new every word to "The Trees"...so I wrote down the lyrics to The Trees.
When I turned in the assignment I thought my hard ass teacher was damn near going to shed a tear...I think she thought she had discovered the next Edgar Allan Poe. To say she was impressed was an understatement. So impressed she started sharing it with other teachers around school. It turns out that one of those teachers was also a Rush fan. For about a week I knew what it felt like to be a teachers pet...and then it went south. She was so embarrassed and pissed at me that it took everything I had to even pass the class.
Could have been a song by Body Count. Would have been expelled from every school in the state. Their first album is a masterpiece.
