Rats on the ceilings

There is this noise that keeps me awake
Ranting from the east; amplifying in west
Just as the quakes from an earthquake;

During the day it is calm, and still as a lake
But at night, it flows more than I can take
Making unending twittering sound of birds

Excruciating from a particular corner
And at same time striking loud like thunder
Mimicking drums, and all there are to drummers;

Pulling my eyes unto their movement
Nothing I see, so nothing I ever find
Wondering how they got there to hide.
