Midnight Rangers

What a magical time
Midnight is tonight
Something in it enlivens my mind
Many are tipsy off beer and wine.

Everyone so alive
When so many are asleep
The city starts to thrive
The city has a beat.

People taking public transport
A spring amongst their step
After letting loose some of the weeks cancers
It’s night like this that keep them fresh.

People so vocal
Greeting strangers with silly jokes
People so social
I see such similarities in completely different folk.

There’s a man standing centre aisle
Making friendly with some strangers
He doesn’t stop till he makes them smile
Just one amongst, the midweek midnight rangers.
