A 50-word exercise
“I will not tolerate violence” our headmaster roared, thumping his desk. He gave Billy and me six strokes of the cane.
“So much for non-violence” I muttered. I got two more strokes.
Billy and I had fought over Molly Molloy; she promptly rejected us both.
Ah, well, another lesson learned.

They certainly were mate and they did for every minor breach of discipline at our school
Loved the pun by the way!
