Let The Fog Roll In - Poem by Ben Paynter

Let the fog roll in I say
From the mountains, and no tongue
Has told a lie it didn’t like
Nor sang a song it hasn’t sung

Let the fog roll in I say
I’d rather have it here than there
Atop that mountain with the snow
Where only birds can cut the air

Let the fog roll in I say
The sun has grown a boring tone
The streetlights make the shadows dance
And make the streets seem less alone
