Pants!…

***

Not only did the Guffsta… Opine regret… For the natural end… Of the problem… When quizzed about muzzles… He compared them to… Pants!… Nuff said… They were called troosers… In our house… But proper troos… Like ski pants… Had hooks for the feet… On the bottom… And the transition… From short pants… To long troosers… Constituted some sort… Of coming of age… From boy… To lad, perhaps… It is sometimes… Difficult to be precise about these terms… For Beacon High… It was a full on uniform… And a bomb bag suitcase… For exercise books… Pencils, rubbers, pens and… Protractors!

Because of Rudy Trudy’s performance of late… There have been lots of past clips… And well, really… He looks a total creep… From the get go… What we really need to see… Is the Upper Sixth shot of us all… On the last day… Of High Furlong… Penny, apparently… Has a copy… With Rick Lovall… On both ends… Because he ran round the back of the group… After the camera… Had panned past… There has always to be one… Can’t think what we all looked like… Back then… Not how the memory has it… That is for sure… One thing that has become apparent… The memory is not to be relied on… For anything.

Come the safety data release… And the remaining cards… Will tumble… It seems ludicrous from this vantage… How they expected to get away with it… Yet, by the same token… They so nearly did… Once bitten… Twice shy… Fool me once… And all that… We can but hope… That these… Common phrases… Hold good… When the next onslaught… Inevitably occurs… It will look different… But it will be exactly the same… They have no creative imagination, see… And not one original thought amongst them… Simply because… They were not here… In the beginning… When elemental forces… Acted on a rock.
