The Sacred Summary

Here's the 0 to 60 version of Dunn's poem: Teacher asks class if anyone has a special place, students get uncomfortable, one brave soul mentions his car, others begin to open up, several agree that their car is the best place to get away from it all. Aaaand… that's it.

If only all classes went by that quickly, right?
