A streetlight on a city street

Pale circle in the dark

Offers haven to one mind,

Searching for an absence of shadows,

A place from which can come no hidden attack.

But to another,

The streetlight circle is no haven

But a dreadful spotlight

The bull’s-eye in the night

For those with villainous intentions.

What is the human mind,

And what powers does it hold,

That it in stark contrast

Presents the facts so?

The fact of a city streetlight.
