Manchester @ Midnight

Tram rolling into the New Bridge House

Spots the sun heading off to pastures new

The new moon sits proudly in the Northern Night sky

Reflecting its image in the Mirrored Glass


Glitterballs twinkle in the coloured light of a hall

as students grab the last of the week – they’re having a ball.

Maidens and their knights make their way into the night

as LED Lanterns guide them by light


And as Emergency Sirens can be heard across town

Cleaning Crew vehicles, scour the ground

Picking up Wrappers from open food bars

as party goers make their way home by the stars


The Final bus – its made its way

There’s no more time – you’ve enjoyed the day

but there’s one more coffee – from the late night caff

as you talk with your mates and enjoy a laugh.
