late at night when all people dream
the world is not as it may seem

in the daylight things are less scary 
but at night you must be wary

for the darkness that surrounds us all
one misstep and you will fall

into the deep world below
and then you will begin to know

the secrets that we all hold dear
is what you will begin to hear

all are truth and none are lies
this is what will make you wise

for when you are next out in the night
you will bring with you a flashlight
