|Outside the game,
it's all a silly game,
But on the hockey field the run and swipe
Means life itself, and all the rest is tame.
Yes, this is living, and the rest is tripe.
The rest's a tedium of rules and fools,
Of parents, teachers, and the whole damn crew
With their nine hundred things you shouldn't do,
And their health warnings, and their scabby schools,
And what you want the very least, above
All fucking else, their suffocating love.
