Black To White - Poem by Buddy Bee Anthony

Daylight to sundown
lights go on
lights turn out
Neon slips to shadow
this is not my town

Thoughts of mine
turn inside out
as everything fades
white to black
black to white

It's all so retro
A blast in from the past
Us against them
right and wrong
too easily assessed

It's mighty, mighty grim
when all I see is a bright red hot rim
Can't you see that bright red hot rim

Yet, all they see is
white to black
black to white

Newsman's dashin
stocks are crashin
words spill on and off the print

Flashbulbs flashin
all the fashion
but nobody seems to take the hint

It's they and their lives
as everything fades
white to black
black to white

Then it begins again
In the starlight
white to black
black to white
When will it end
There must be more shades of truth to blend
than white to black
black to white
daylight to sundown
lights turn on
lights go out
