The Moon by Blaine Kaltman

I often wish I was the moon
In earthly orbit I would loom
A crater ridden sphere of white
That casts apart the black of night
Illuminating darkened sky
And glowing soft to pacify
The primitives who worship me
Not comprehending what they see
For should they ever choose to roam
At night I’ll light their journey home
My shine protecting them from stray
‘til eaten by the light of day
