Night Devils

When the night owls chase away the day,
The grinning demons come out to play,
And three times a dozen even more,
They seep slowly in through your mind's door.

You can try to close them from your mind,
But the more you try the more you find,
They keep on coming and will not budge,
No matter how you push, shove and nudge.

You have no choice, you just have to wait,
For the morning sun outside the gate,
With the coming of the day's bright light,
The demons will slink back into the night.
