For example I wrote this:

!Paying! for exams, and also books
to pass them is only a small price /
to give poor people the opportunity /
...to contribute for the MANSIONS of the people in charge of the edu|ca|tio|nal system

There are some ideas there but since it is irony I'm getting a bit confused by my own writing (I'm a heavy drinker). Is there any technique to underline and list the ideas in this short text?


This paragraph have a meessage for the reader, I want to find a way of arranging those ideas or group them.

Bullets and the "underline" function usually work for me. :) You're being vague, dear. Sober up and rewrite the question so it's a little clearer, please? – Lauren Ipsum Mar 19 '11 at 13:34
@Lauren Ipsum that was a good one :). Please see my EDIT. – Alexandro Chen Mar 19 '11 at 16:13
Still looks like bullets to me. – Lauren Ipsum Mar 19 '11 at 21:21
