Beware the shadows
They come out at night
Relish what remains of today
While the sun still shines bright
For dusk will soon come
And with it hordes of spectral blights
Beware the shadows 
They come out at night
A baleful malevolence
Existing with the sole purpose
To snuff all light
If you happen to see them
I implore you abscond
Find a lucent haven
As hastily as you can
Then kneel and pray
To prevail for another day
For they are a perilous legion
Seeking only the extinction of life
Beware the shadows
They come out at night
