The Horrors Below

Advent Poems Day Three

The light at night highlights the best

Whether the soft glow of the moon

Or under our own ingenious invention

Darkness hides in corners and hollows and alleyways

Shading dirt and grime and molestation from view

Light reflects the beauty of the surface

Underneath our fears stir and wave hello

Hey you! Up there! Gazing at the magnificence of the stars

Yes you! Gormless fool! Writing poetry

To enlightened cities and rivers aglow

We, the monsters, are still here

Waiting for the likes of you to trip

And fall beneath such obvious beauty

To play with us in the horrors below
