Night Train Terror

In a darkened room where a huddled mass of ignorant eyes
lay fearful, yet trusting among compassionate caretakers,
muffled words babbled of solace..."we're in this together."

A hissing screech from a hazardous face
closed the room in tightened grip...
there was moaning, lament, grief
as the last freedom was carted away
in a crowded freight car, emblazoned
with worn out logos mirroring billboards.

The tossing tempest of a night tale was stifled
by rising words softly spoken, "you are safe."
From the green glow of creation
the seas calmed... warmed by the weight
of a wooly, woven blanket.
