School Days

    "Those were the days, the days that are gone. The faces forgotten, the memories linger on........ Southminster."
    No.6 "I see you still wear the old school Straw Boater."
    No.14 "Old habits die hard. And you the piped blazer of the captain of the boxing team."
    "As you say."
    "Do you miss the old school?
    "Not really. Haven't been back in years."
    "I miss the old school, they were happy days."
    "What house were you in."
    "Hereward."
    "I was in Trinity."
    "I was bullied a great deal."
    "Well you only had yourself to blame. You shouldn't have gone about wearing that gym-slip!"
    "Public school does that to you!"
    "I was a Prefect."
    "Yes, you would be!"
    "Is that why you seek power through playing chess, to compensate against your being bullied at school?"
    "What do you think?"
    "Shall we sing the old school song?"
    "Those were the days the days that are gone. The faces forgotten, the memories linger on........"
