in a patch of green weeds
where the dandelions grow
where the dandelions float
on a whispering breeze

there'd once been an endless cacophony
of the wind in the trees

but steal monsters devoured
the music

where the sidewalks end
where the roads all bend
and grass sprouts up through the cracks
that the people didn't mend

there's a chalk-and-dirt smile
scrawled across an empty road
in pink and in green and in sundance yellow

what the meaning is, only a little child knows

but steal monsters devoured the music
