Raising Cane

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.
