Onomatopoeia
Eight Balloons no one was buyin'
All broke loose one afternoon.
Eight balloons with strings a-flyin'
Free to do what they wanted to
One flew up to touch the sun POP!
One thought highways might be fun POP!
One took a nap in a cactus pile POP!
One stayed to play with a careless child POP!
One tried to taste some bacon fryin' POP!
One fell in love with a porcupine POP!
One looked close in a crocodile"s mouth POP!
One sat around until his air ran out WHOOSH!
Eight balloons no one was buyin'
They broke loose and away they flew
Free to float and free to fly
And free to pop where they wanted to.
Where the city sleeps
and i am the only one and I walk alone.
