"Lights"

“Lights”

Excitement in the city, dancing bright lights!
Neon beckoned on concrete, welcoming delights!
Dancing manic to embrace, forgotten chose
Panhandlers, not enjoying much, in ragged clothes

But, Oh! The fancy suits, wearer quick to smile!
Provocative sensuality, outside the club in file!
Manic is the dancing, unchained free to lust
Searching souls a wandering, in alcohol to trust

Lighted is the city, brightest allure at night
Hidden is the decay, exposed in sunlight
Laboured in, in towers glass, under the knife
Wanton, grasping, misunderstood, filled o’ strife

Neon lights soft beckoning, city’s bright allure
Enjoyment, excitement: traveled to in fun sure
Caged upon the industrial wheel, no time to think
Inhaling industrial smog, accepted that, with stink.

Oh the pleasures there, excited to roam!
Appreciated more, when in unlit at home!
Starlight dancing brightly, false light not obscure!
Lilac fragrance in bloom, drawn breath so pure!

But Oh! The fancy suits they wear, blooms in spring
Lilacs, tulips, daffodils! Happiness to creatures bring!
Nesting little rabbits, robins laying eggs to nest
Upon the gardens of delight, does the spirit rest!

Dancing in the city, and worn of excitement clothes
Joyous is attracted to, that clear and unopposed
Balance of the starlit sky, lighted never false lit
Marvell ed at the depths seen, here and there…a bit.
