Raising Cane

Another 50 worder  

“I will not tolerate violence” roared our headmaster, thumping his desk.
Billy and me got six strokes of the cane.  
“So much for non-violence” I muttered. I got two more.  
Billy and I had fought over Molly Molloy; she rejected us both.  
'Boys who fight are stupid,' she said.
