Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Night Vision)

Night sight-

Used to be arranged through moonlight.


And then we moved to candlelight-

To read by, to lighten up our night.


Or at best a simple campfire-

To light up around, to keep away

darkness dire.


And then of course-

We headed toward gaslight, in full force.


In the running, eventually came electricity-

And then for the first time, at night, we could truly see.


With a bulb here, and a bulb there-

Bright lights were shining everywhere.


Night sight-

Used to be arranged through moonlight.
