Poem -

What "they" can do

they can cause happiness 
they can cause sorrow 
but once it starts tonight 
there's no stopping till tomorrow 

the grass is covered in them 
they swirl and twirl 
through the breeze 
with ease 

they make you go blue in the face 
until they leave this place 
the kids will find happiness and fun 
but there plan has just begun 
they fall upon the roads, streets 
rooftops trees 

till the town is painted white 
one glimpse of sunlight 
they begin to fade 
cleaning up the mess they made 
they'll be gone tomorrow 
and next year 
they will cause happiness 
and they will cause sorrow
