Ode to the Lamppost

A general riding a horse colored black

With perennials tucked into his cap

And too much hand on the bridle

His men esteem him as an idol


He gallops quickly onward

Ensnaring the sun to banish yonder


He sings “now the sky is mine!”

And the ghoulish men do a jive


Yet here you are to maintain the fight

Though forces of evil work to kill your light

They fail against your extreme luminescence

As you withstand their frightful presence


With a yellow which warms like a caring glance


The forsaken man with his head in his hands

Swaying side by side

With failing eyes

Now finds a friend in the attack of the night
