Couple of pals chatting to each other in their home…
J – Christ, the news is so bloody depressing innit George?! You think we’ll ever stop warring with each other?
G – What? Me and thee over the last pack of crisps when we’ve got the munchies?!
J – You pillock! I mean us as a race of people, you know, humans. I despair sometimes, especially when the sodding news is on
G – Think I know what you mean. Shall we put “Civil war” on then, set the mood for one of our great debates?
J – Yeah, why not? Axl’s right man. What’s so civil about bloody war?!
G – Did you know that the yanks spend $353 billion on arms out of a global figure of $789 billion?
J – Bugger me George. You’re full of useless information like that! Where’d you dig that one up then?
G – Oh, just googled it one day, found that on good ol’ Wikipedia didn’t I? It also mentioned that there’s 172 000 war deaths globally and it had a note that they didn’t occur in the USA!
J – Edwin Starr was right…
Both singing – WAR! What is it good for? Absolutely sodding NOTHING…!
J – I ain’t seen you playing any of your wargames lately George.
G – Wargames? That’s a film with Matthew Broderick in it innit!?
J – HoHoHo, very drole!! Reckon your “Assassins Creed” has weeks of dust on it!
G – Yeah, it’s you man. Got me thinking why the fascination with war, blood, guts? Decided recently I don’t wanna be like all them out there. Should be more love in the world.
J – Yeah, Cindy at number 13! Phwoar! I’d do some love there, I can tell ya!!!
G – Trust you bringing it all back down to base level! Mind you, Jennifer Aniston springs to mind for me!!!
J – Meanwhile, back in the so called civilised world, there’s all them youths on the street who reckon they get respect by being ‘tooled’ up so they can defend themselves.
G – And I thought it was cars that balanced out the size of some guy’s penises!!

Got my degree at University of Cumbria (Lancaster) in English Lit and Creative Writing and now find how difficult it really is to make yourself write everyday. Hardest job in the world! Now a few years on I realise just how hard. Wordsworth was right, movement is so important to creativity...So a few years on now and over 50 walking football is seemingly the movement needed!
