Somebody turn off the lights, please
This city refuses to sleep
With its flashing signs and
Blazing white hot lamps
And the streets arguing
With incessant honks and beeps
Half past one at night, but the road
Is as lit up, as the
Excessively loud billboards
Even the vacant lots shine so
Painfully bright
Just overloading sensory stimuli
Adding to the pounding load
Images whipping ceaselessly
Promising unexplored or
Magical sights
But I don’t want to see
Somebody please
Just for a little while
Turn off the lights

    There’s no one left to turn off the lights or turn down the sound, Cookie.
    They all left for higher ground! 🙂
