It's foolishness, all this, he said, and sat to watch the game.
Let them all calm down, he said, soon enough it will be done
Sit down, we'll watch the game.
I worry sometimes, though, she said
They bother me, the noise they make. They never stop, I wish they would
But still …
She watched the game.
It's none of my concern, he said, and turned to watch the game
My voice? What is it I could say? I can't begin to turn the tide
What more can I do, anyway? Just sit and watch the game.
Hush. Hush. No need to make a noise. Sit here and watch them pass
Don't draw the fire of crazy men; don't lead the eye toward our place
Don't say a word, it's nowt of ours
Just sit and watch the game.
There is no line of decency, so hush now. Sit here, too
It's come before, ool come again
It's just a joke, give them a poke, electric jigger in ye hand
We'll laugh together all of us, when this is done and all is past
Just sit for now and haud yer wheesht
Sit still and watch the game.
