DEAR SUNSHINE

This unprepared request of 
mine
May sound bizarre as 
darkness' shine
But look upon how safe I 
fare
And tell me if your light is 
fair.

In darkness frogs have 
chance to sing
And owls become the lords 
of birds
And bats pretend to live like 
birds
And saints may have a 
secret fling.

In it our bodies lose their 
speech
And liars are believable
In it some aren't invisible
Behold the law is out of 
reach.

So why not stay forever 
away
So none can come for their 
old debt
And try to seize my old 
blanket
With which I drive the chills 
away?
