Goldenrod, Lies, and Alibis

Among tombstones

Butterflies flew

Tall goldenrod grew

They went and they came

From evening to dawn

Lies became alibis

When the money was gone

Buzzards watched

From rooftops nearby

Expenses paid in full

One way or another

Too big to cry

Those that were there

Knew the reasons why

Among tombstones

Butterflies flew

Tall goldenrod grew

Right or wrong

They went and they came

From evening to dawn
