The lions are loose
In the streets tonight
Devouring moonlight as it spills
And flows down lane and alley
Chewing up the light
Leaving dark, leaving nothing
But empty shadows
And the sound of 
Of growling and gnashing
Of teeth

    I loved that “The lions are loose/ In the streets tonight…” A bit of Jack Prelutsky in this one, very nice!
