George and Junior were fighting out in a grassy school yard that is also sandy. They were friends, so they may just have been funnin' or playing, but they were a little mad at each other. They weren't even sure why. It was summertime and very hot so they were wearing their shorts. And their feet were hot in the sun. This was a lot of years ago so their clothes look "old timey".
They just felt like fighting and decided to try out some boxing. They ought to beat each other, but we think the strongest boy will win. That will probably be George who is 9. He's the one on the left in the white shirt, and he is bigger and stronger. Junior is only 8 and he is smaller.
You can see the school building in the back, but you can also see another boy who is getting ready to run. He doesn't want to fight. Their families are over by the gate watching, and their parents think they shouldn't be fighting. Their mothers will be upset, but their fathers will look into it. They will grow up to be strong men, but if they keep fighting, they will end up in jail. They will probably get a whipping for fighting, and then have to take a bath and go to bed. But before that, they will ask their parents if they have to play with Tommy any more so they can just be best friends.
