Why I Got "D"s in English

I once peformed poorly in English classes--junior high right into high school. It's because in 1st grade during music class we had to sing "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah." Grammar and vocab are instilled at a young age, retarded and reinforced when one lives in the shadow of a "y'all" drawl in Oklahoma.

"Mister Bluebird's on my shoulder, / It's the truth, it's "actch'll" / Everything is "satisfactch'll."

This is what I think about in the shower. Please don't picture me in the shower, unless that works for you. It doesn't for me.
