Hi, I'm doing a presentation on this poem in less than 18 hours and I have no idea what it is about. Please help. Thanks.

A Quarrel between Night and Day

night proposed to day
I'll take twelve hours
and you take twelve hours
day had to accept it
for there was no alternative
or night will take twenty four
hours of fear of dream-thoughts
fastening us to deep darkness forever

but night cannot be trusted
it wanted the stars, moon and all the citylights
leaving only
the sun and one stray star
astray in early daylight
while day laughs at the wet sun

that is why i fear the night
always bringing dream-thoughts
making one hungry in the chest
the next morning,
a bad prelude to a working day
with only one forty minute break

Donno if you will get this in time but its like a debate about day and night, and a compromise. like a compromise between friends, you take half the candy and I'll take the other half. Except its night and day compromising the time in one day. and its abit in regret, hatting night for "taking" so much.

dear ngeok nean,

thanks for the feedback. I eventually did dissect it and came up with sexual connotations which, by the help of the class, links it to psychological analysis. So, apparently, that's where the poem is going. :D

thanks again for your kind reply. God bless :)
