We, the Nocturnal Tribe !!

Oh, it’s that wonderful time
When only a handful few hear those serenity chimes

Lovers to each other whispering sweet nothings
Exes remembering some old broken things

Writers pouring their hearts out
Readers digging a book inside out

Radio jockeys humming into their mikes
Insomniacs and sleep deep into a fight

Students with books burn their midnight oil
Hapless employees on their spreadsheets toil

Security guards on duty, sticks clasped in their hands
Thugs successfully working away somewhere with their plans

Yes, we all are strangers in the night
Bound by a connection obscure, a part of this nocturnal tribe!!
