Perfectly Normal Midnight

We should say it's a dark day,
A partly dark day at least,
When the world is behaving
Normally. Start with our own
Little darknesses, the deeds
We've learned to do to others,
Then scale up to dictators,

Always some strong man somewhere
Playing at cruel demigod.
There's natural disaster,
The lotteries of hunger,
And the fact half the planet
Is always dark. Dark right now
Near me; more darkness coming.
