Would the Lights Turned Off


I stare up at the empty, boring sky
and listen to the city life below.
As I lie in bed I ask myself why
people are always rushing to and fro.

Where are they off to with such a fast pace?
Why are they always in such a hurry?
How can they live in this eternal race?
From place to place, like a mouse, they scurry.

If the city was frozen for a day
and time was no longer a thing held dear,
would they live life in a different way?
Would they let go of their worries and fears?

Would they learn to dance and abandon their cars?
Would the lights turn off and we’ll see the stars?

I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
