Wish I was a Kellogg's Cornflake
Floatin' in my bowl takin' movies,

Those were your choices in 1968. Laying in the pool he pictures himself as anything but what and who he is. Corn flakes don't have to fight wars or make decisions. Later he sadly sees himself if he does go off to war, just a photograph in uniform on Mary Jane's piano,a distant memory as boys who didn't go off to war court the girl; everybody knows what they're tippy-toeing 'round there for.
    Paul Simon is brilliant.
