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

Updated on November 27, 2011

“Give me the Night.”

When it seems

That life

And everything

Suddenly stops

When the natural,

Sounds of time

Is played on


Of truth.

A rabbit hops.

Sounds which

became dwarfed

got drowned

During that

Much needed


A daily sight


the lifeless


To get married

to the shade


a welcoming


For the night

Equipped with



Voices finely


Allowing nature

Its course

In this

Life and death


The light fades

The sound rises,

Nothing to be


A sudden



A hissing over


A slight moaning

Over there

Running water

At the creek

The owl hoots

Lends a peek.


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


Their mothers


In memory

of their dad

who also

got run ove

He died.

They are truly

not afraid

of heights.

But love the

music that


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


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.
