No one hit him hard out there…
Listen no one hit him hard out there. And I did my best to bring him around. So wipe your eyes and let’s go. Based on the poetry of John Foulcher, Why Ryan is on Detention examines a man grieving for his youth in a school where the teachers sometime deserve detention more than the students.
