Thread Name: Anyone here had to recite?
Subject: RE: Anyone here had to recite?
This was one of our elocution excercise:

To sit in solemn silence in a dull dark dock,
In a pestilencial prison with a life long lock.
Awaiting the sensation of a short sharp shock,
From a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block.

We first had to recite it aloud then then again in a whisper so that only the first and last consonants were audible.

Works quite well.
