Power outage


Power outage

by Mr. Unknown

The lights flicker briefly

Before clicking out

No time to worry

No time to pout

You find the flashlights

And candles to ignite

Cast them aglow

No panic or fright

Continue a book

Or stock up a fire

The darkness reminds you of something

You begin to feel tired

As your head hits the pillow

In your mind, you pledge

“Thank you, oh thank you,”

“Dear power outage”
