Memory Of The Future - Pet Shop Boys
He’d fight outside the school gates
He’d fight outside the shop
He’d fight the weak and weirdos
He’d fight ‘til they begged stop
No doubt he was bully
No doubt he never cared
No doubt his filthy fury
No doubt that he was scared
And now he is a child no more
And now his friends have grown
And now they've found their future
And now he’s left alone
He fights against his memories
He fights his ancient pride
He fights the guilt that goads him
The bully who has died

Have you ever been bullied? Have you bullied someone else?
Write a short playscript where the bully and the victim meet all alone. What would happen? What would they say to each other?
Act out your play with a partner.
