     As shadows lengthen
in the asphalt homeland
  The city winds down 
The once vibrant streets 
   are now a home for ghosts
Perhaps you feel that nightime 
  is "Where it's at"
Take heed of this warning
   which I give you 
Demons come out at night!
   They can cause you to lose
 by clutching you in their 
     deadly grasp
 Don't be fooled by the nightime 
Demons are still about 
         and can strike rapidly 
even in the midst of the metropolis 
Demons live on fresh flesh 
         So keep your eyes wide open 
Don't linger overlong in 
        city alleyways
lest you dissapear
  Into shadow

    Oh, it's the middle of night here, Matthew, this makes me listen to the sounds outside! I hear only the cars on the highway, there is no breeze or wind to cut off the sound. Funny, during the day it seems like there are no cars? No alleyways, but I'm happy to be in the house after reading this.:( Best wishes, Mikki
