  1. The pace of a one-liner and playing with the cultural notion of "the dark side of the moon" (the side that we never see is related to something mysterious and unknown) lift the poem out of the ordinary.

    Note: The cultural notion of "the dark side of the moon" has been popularized by Pink Floyd's 1973 album of the same name. It's arguably the greatest rock album ever created and its main themes deal with issues of insecurity, insanity, death, and war.
