A  Silent  Witness    # 8

Have  you  considered  the  shadow  man
Who  silently   obliges,  what  light  and
Dark  command,  mimicking,  he's  plays  
A  pantomime

Ever  wonder  about  shadows ?  I  do, they
Visit  little  children  at  night,  telling
 Stories  Of   monstrous  creatures,  sending
 Them  Shivering, underneath   their   blankets

 A  silent  witness  to  all  deeds  done
Never  judging  or  giving  pats  on  the
Back, this  faceless  figure  who's
Dressed  in  black.
