No one told you not to do it
No one told you you couldn’t
No one told you you needed
To be told not do it
And at the end of the day
No one told you you shouldn’t

That of all the shades of man
Only a toddler can be a brachiosaur
Towering over all where he stands

Before this life petrifies me
To grownup doldrums and fears
The world’s our monstrous playground
From the carpet to the skies

Enchanted by existence
Untouched by passing years
The floor is always lava
To a gleeful pair of eyes

Looming over the pass
We watched them plan their theft
In turn we blocked the mighty door
To stop their weak advance

Fate was swift and death came fast
‘Til not a single one was left
Squatted on the pantry floor
We ate all those thieving ants
