Lords of the Night
As the sun sinks behind buildings and meadows;
When darkness moves in and the lesser lights rule -
Lone figures scurry and slink in the shadows
Mangy and starving they search, sniff and drool.
During the day they rest and they slumber
Seeking a spot in the sun or the shade;
Once it is dark and the sun has gone under
They run in packs for protection and aid.
Shadowy figures; thin, supple and
