stramash: uproar, anarchy, to create a disturbance.

What is all this anarchy on the playground floor stirring up the dust of the tarmacadam for.

What are you doing out of your boxes, who started it?

Have you forgotten all of your social distancing training.

Remember your teachings. Stay apart. No running. No hugging. No playing. No spitting. No sharing your grannies last sucking sweet between everyone. Totally believe the history we teach you. And always obey those who say they are your betters. No matter what.

Back in your boxes people. Back in your boxes.
