A holiday in quarantine
There are work and holidays,
And there are the quarantine holidays.
Everyone looks forward to one,
But don’t realise when it’s finally done.
Rejoice at the prospect of not computer screening,
Celebrate a beautiful family gathering?
Eating well stands a frivolity,
With favourite Online shows an added flummery!
Holiday mornings you refuse to awaken,
It’s been long since the sun has risen,
Your kid is making a crazy mess,
But instead you dream of outings and success!
As your joy knows no bounds,
You get finished with the coffee grounds..
Rush to online websites for some exotic foods,
Excitedly tell the kids to finish online school.
You stuff yourself and put lots of alcohol in,
You get tipsy and look within,
This is the life, I need this!
But can’t believe how crazy this is!
Believe it or not you cope well
Are ready to make the most of this spell,
Then comes the evening for reflection,
How productive have you been really in comparison...
Wait a minute, it has been the same,
Yesterday u just had your computer frame,
You still haven’t gone past your front door,
Been anywhere near a bus, shop or sea shore...
Online everything is the new alternative
It’s fun to wear pyjamas to a work narrative,
Make everything ready at your fingertips,
But be ready to bow down to this isolated shit.
Wish this pandemic were over finally,
So that we all can step out with dignity!
