Moonlight vision may well be
the precursor: Electricity is gone now
and folks must now write with the pen
that only sees a candle, friend
Or many, many candlepower
Moon is slower (duller) than
a candle but so what, my friend?
It lasts longer in the end
Who cares what is slower than
the what; the by is by the way
Moonlight brings us into day
