Silence makes an eerie sound,
When you’re alone, no one around.
Your house is normally full of noise,
Barking dogs and rowdy boys.
But this night, it’s just you,
Sitting in silence, nothing to do.
You could watch the tv,
Or listen to music on MP3.
But for now you just sit,
And rest your tired brain a bit.
Far too soon they will be here,
Charging in with whoops and cheers.
So, you enjoy the silence while you can,
Who knows when it’ll come again.
The silence disappears as your brothers arrive,
The house, again, a buzzing hive.
