A Crime In The Dark Of Night

Under the cover of the drowsy night,
I see a very painful sight,
On the outskirts of the city,
A crime is born out of pity,
The crime is henious in nature,
Modesty experiences a fracture,
Who are these awesome faces,
I saw on them no traces,
No traces of shame and modesty,
Humanity seems to be void of honesty,
They are waiting for the customers,
They can be both old and new comers,
No job for them is a better substitute,
For each one of them is a prostitute.

Humanity seems to be void of honesty, this one line, Mohd. says a whole page as usual you capture truth in humanity
This is very true. The description is very tangible though brief. It's as if you have managed to delve deep into their mentality and insides where morals, mildness and virtues no longer exist.. Great piece :)
