DMC: "Mushrooms" by Suzy Levinson


Deep in the hush and the gloom of the wood,
mushrooms are standing like they've always stood.
                                                            No one knows they're there.

The world's in a rush! It keeps zooming around!
No one looks down at what lives on the ground...
                                                            Mushrooms? They don't care.
