World War 3: Earth 2016

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….

that’s different.

 

Whatever you do,

you know

it’s going to blow…
