These were lowlifes, one and all. If a fellow can’t own up to what he’s done, then he shouldn’t have done it in the first place. Unless I produced absolute proof, these guys were dug in to shamelessly feigning ignorance. I may have made some mischief in my own time, but never once did I hesitate to come clean when questioned. I was always forthcoming about what I had and hadn't done. Who makes mischief then lies to evade due punishment? Mischief and punishment are mutually entwined. Punishment cleanses the mischievous soul. Do they imagine a world where sordid minds rule the day? Where mischief runs unchecked? These are the types, no doubt, who borrow money after graduation and then repay their debts with “sorry.” What are they doing in middle school? They show up here, tell lies, practice deception, lurk in the shadows, and orchestrate dastardly deeds. Then they graduate and proudly declare themselves “educated,” when in fact they’re nothing but ignorant louts.
