There's four boys and two are fighting.
One boy says "I can!" and the other says "No, you cannot!"
"It's my turn." "No! It's my turn."
One boy bumped the other..."Well, you bumped me first!"
Boys don't need anything to fight about except girls.
It's a possibility they are fighting about girls.
Or maybe one called an obscene name.
Nobody cares about girls when they are beyond that. But those boys, they might care about girls.
These boys are in a school yard in Africa. They are schoolmates.
The boy in the white shirt is named Robert. He has one brother and one sister. They never get along.
The other boy with no shirt is named Johnny. Maybe he doesn't have a mother because of his lack of clothing.
Maybe his mom doesn't watch him while he's dressing.
The bigger boy in the background tells a story. His name is Charlie.
Charlie is trying to get out of the way of the fighting. Charlie is the peacemaker.
Charlie is going to decide who wins because he is watching close.
The boys are angry.
Boys will just grow up to be bigger boys.
They take their fists and pop them really good. Maybe even get a bloody nose.
No one wins this fight!
