City Nights

City nights and city lights
Of a city faraway.
Skyscrapers of different heights,
But dreams don't fly away.

Beware of the red fire-
The queen of the meadow.
Crown goes up, higher! Higher!
The cloud becomes a crow.

Shattered glass, damaged floor,
Trapped inside the room.
Queen opens circuit door,
Electric shock, kaboom!

City nights melt away,
The queen takes over.
City night, bright as day,
As the queen ordered.

Overcoming city lights,
All die out with sparks.
Mercy, please, oh! Human rights!
She's much worse than sharks.

All souls evaporate;
Neptune got defeated.
The good enter Heaven's Gate;
Help- no longer needed.

City nights and city lights
Of a city long ago.
All you see are sparks like kites,
Let's get up and go.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
