Night and day
The equinox is near, which means
That day and night are matched;
A couple minutes less each day
Never miss a local story.
Of daylight are dispatched.
These daylight minutes being lost —
I wonder where they crouch?
Perhaps they rolled beneath the fridge
Or fell behind the couch?
So issue now an A.P.B.!
We’re clearly being shorted —
If precious daylight’s being lost
That ought to be reported.
