I am not a person
I am a light post
I stand tall
Always
Proud of my place
In this world
I light dark sidewalks
And the night bugs all
Crowd around me
Dancing to the tune of my shine
My sleek skin is made of metal
No one
Can hurt me
Have you ever tried to hurt metal?
Because you can't
Bones bend to metal
And when it rains
People swing around me
Singing and dancing
Just like that old movie
I can't remember the name of
I am not a person
I am a light post
Who is never lost in the dark
Who always has company
Who is never hurt
Who always has a place
In old movies
When times were simple
And happy
And grand
That's why I am a light post
Not a person
