Paul Revere, in Reverse

SUPPOSE the shade of Paul Revere,
In case it ever happened here,
Contrived to hang his signal lights
From old North Church on blackout nights;
One, if by land, and two, if by sea —
Worse if, by air, he should make it three;
Air Wardens then would shout at him:
’Paul, for God’s sake, douse that glim!’
