How do you fight a school bully?

Master Wong

YouTube Video, November 2017

Two Comments

"He is a mastermind. He teaches you how to discreetly destroy a bullies life, then hide the evidence."

"YouTube's 22222 I fought school bullies almost every day for the entire year and I lost all of them because I was brainwashed by the school rules Not to fight back But I then learned that if I don’t fight back I will continue to be bullied. So I’m learning to fight back and it seems to work. And one thing I learned from the bullying is to turn yours and the bully’s weaknesses in to strengths."

Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)

George Harrison

From the album All Things Must Pass 1970

Greenwood by scotto

The song is supposed to be about Sir Francis Crisp, and Friar Park

Let it roll across the floor
Through the hall and out the door
To the fountain of perpetual mirth
Let it roll for all it's worth

Find me where ye echo lays
Lose ye bodies in the maze
See the lord and all the mouths he feeds
Let it roll among the weeds
Let it roll

Let it roll down through the caves
Ye long walks of Coole and Shades
Through ye woode, here may ye rest awhile
Handkerchiefs to match your tie
Let it roll

Let it roll, let it roll
Let it roll, let it roll

Fools illusions everywhere
Joan and Molly sweep the stairs
Eyes that shining full of inner light
Let it roll into the night

Let it roll, let it roll
Let it roll, let it roll
Let it roll, let it roll

Alternative version

Let it roll across the bog,
Through the hole and out the door
Through the fountain of perpetual
Let it roll for all it's worth

Frankie Crisp, he had no legs
Lose your body in the maze
See the door to the northern bounty feast
Let it roll among the weeds
Let it roll

Let it roll out through the caves
Through the walks and through the shade
Through the good one, may he rest awhile
Hanging chiefs and matching time
Let it roll

Let it roll, Let it roll
Let it roll, Let it roll

Fool's illusions every word
John and Paul, they sweep the stern
Eyes are shining but a river lies
Let it roll into the night

Let it roll, Let it roll
Let it roll, Let it roll
