Lights Out

Turn off the light

see no more Victoria burning bright

let us return to black as night

so we can see the stars again

Sun drowns them out by day

not by chance do we catch that ray

overhead is the Milky Way

part of the universe we find ourselves in

What if there was no light pollution

look at the heavens for a solution

find a universe with the same mutation

trillions of years away from where we begin

We can’t start over with another universe shapen

our sun will burn out before that can happen
