Day 47


September
“This is the Night”
Apocalyptic whisperings,
Philosophical mutterings.
Societal Death Brigades,
Leading the last parade.
History is a mystery.
Push rewind, and
We’ll always replay.

Hey tomorrow
Could be the end,
And you don’t want
to be the last one left.
So hey,
Listen to my words
And you’ll maybe be okay.
Just stay,
For one more moment
Before you run away.

We are what we always fought.
The lies that we bought
And that we always fell into.
We are at fault,
The robbers and the vault.
A fortress built to fall,
And the ones to lose it all.

So listen.
You’ll understand
The game we play.
Hey,
So do you know truth?
The essence of youth,
That society stole
From you?

If you don’t
See the lies they wrote,
Stay ignorant,
They’ll win the battle.
You’ll be left behind.
And we’ll lose the war.

So
Hey, tomorrow
Could be the end,
And you don’t want
to be the last one left.
So hey,
Listen to my words
And you’ll maybe be okay.
Just stay,
For one more moment
Before you run away.
So stand up tall
Avoid the fall.
Don’t be the last one left.
Close the door,
And shut off the light.
This is the night.
