Poem . "Give Me The Night" Video...

“Give me the Night.”

When it seems

That life

And everything

Suddenly stops

When the natural,

Sounds of time

Is played on

Instruments

Of truth.

A rabbit hops.


Sounds which

became dwarfed

got drowned

During that

Much needed

Light

A daily sight

Using

the lifeless

Respite

To get married

to the shade

Becoming

a welcoming

party

For the night

Equipped with

Tightened

Iinstruments

Voices finely

tuned

Allowing nature

Its course

In this

Life and death

Choice;

The light fades

The sound rises,

Nothing to be

Seen

A sudden

Instrumental

Surprise

A hissing over

Here

A slight moaning

Over there

Running water

At the creek

The owl hoots

Lends a peek.

T

Te crocks biding

His time

For whoever

Crosses that line

It’s imaginary

No sound

Pitch darkness

All around

The Raccoon band

Strikes up

And all believed

they were wild

See them enjoying

Single file.

Passing cars

streaking by

they never

left

Their mothers

Side

In memory

of their dad

who also

got run ove

He died.

They are truly

not afraid

of heights.

But love the

music that

played

every night

Knowing the day

Is just around

The corner

When the buzzards

Get their fill

On all who got killed

What a thrill

before the

Light

They all sang

“Give me the night”


All rights reserved.

The possum

That got killed

This night

Lay dead

On the tracks

That’s all

They remember

Thank you "AE" Frank loved it and Cardisa did too but they both sent me in a tailspin.

Frank love the Vulture eating what gets killed at night. Cardisa had to turn her head,no fight, all Ladies , Ladies I say, are first in my book , lots of women out there.My mother.

So I can easily speak to my brethren Frank on this matter . I removed the one that make Cardisa turn her head.

Thanks "AE"
