The Light Went Out

The light went out.

It’s been flickering for a long time now.

But, no one noticed.

The light, it flickered from bright to dim.

Day in and day out.

But, no one noticed.

Does it need to be cleaned?

Does the switch need to be replaced?

Is it getting enough power to perform as brightly as it should?

But, these questions, never once asked.

Too busy, they shouted, from the other side of the glass.

They grumbled and spit and cursed the dim.

Now, it’s dark.

But, no one noticed.
