 HALFMOON
Light of night
Delight
For those who
Sleep the day
Away.

We are the firefighters
Policemen
Nurses
Doctors
Waitresses
Call workers
Cooks
Petro workers
Personal care staff
And others.

We stayed up many years at night
To work
While the people around us slept
We had the night
You had the day
If it goes on as a routine long enough
The sleep-wake cycle gravitates
Towards night time
When the light is from the moon.
