Daylight Saving

A friend of mine saves daylight
in a rusty old tin can.
He says he’s saving it for a rainy
day or for when the power goes out
and the dark comes pouring in.
I know he’s really saving it for his
old age so that when he’s tired and
wrinkled and sitting alone he can
open up his rusty tin can and look
back at the daylight of a bygone age.
“It was all much brighter back then” he’ll say.
