I've heard that argument before, and personally, I like it (since 'K' is
currently unused as a prefix)... just keep in mind that it's not a

On the edge of sleep, I awoke to a sun so bright
Rested and fearless, cheered by your nearness
I knew which direction was right
The case had been tried by the jury inside
The choice between darkness and light...
