Bats Aren't The Only Ones Who Work At Night


Like bats we flock to
the night; wide-eyed,
alert.
Working overtime.

Seagulls; they fly
at night too. But, unlike
bats; seagulls aren't
dark or treacherous.

Is that why I didn't
start with seagulls?
Is it that nothing is
interesting unless, it
is dark or treacherous?

Or maybe it's because
people don't seem to
usually like seagulls
or associate them with
night.

Next time you're out after
dark, look for seagulls.
Not bats.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
