Is it the darkest, before the dawn?
Or could that old adage be all wrong?
Decided to find out for myself
It’s four AM, I’ll know before long
The almanac says sunrise at six
Camera on tripod, keeps a fix
It’s aimed right where the sun comes up
Ten minutes between camera clicks
At five forty five, into high gear
First light of day will soon be here
Now take a picture every minute
Keep it up till the sunup is clear
Now to evaluate what we‘ve got
Develop film in a single lot
We’ll be looking for the darkest black
To be just before the sun’s first dot
Then we discover to our dismay
This experiment has gone astray
No film loaded into the camera
To hell with it, accept the cache
