When my grandchildren have a dispute
over something –
they both want the same pen;
Inigo wants to sit on Tilly’s head
and she would prefer it if he didn’t –
it is easy to resolve.
Find another red pen;
Take Tilly’s head away from Inigo
have another game of bug bingo ..
But when they get restive – being shut in too long..
watching too much television..
just bored with playing nicely..
As my grandmother used to say,
spoiling for a fight….
Whatever you do,
it’s going to blow…
