I guess someone was listening to our
cause now we've got zombies
in the form of inhumane people
and meteor showers to our hearts,
in every flame in that burns a body.
That's how this pandemic story starts.

What is even in trending angmore?
Serial promos, covid misinfo, bathroom
Fine, I'll buy cow dung, just to hit you
If it's the 'natural' vaccine, effective
not only against covid but all your fibs,
Then you must never get sick Cause the whole country has beaten you with it.
I promise I'll quit you but just one more video
Watching memes, sharing trolls
Cause what's more unifying than laughing at them
The lotus that pushed us into this doom
And the actress asking us to make it bloom
Forward it to my WhatsApp groups, we'll laugh our
and talk about it in our houseparty room
I'm disconnecting today, cause I feel lost
The first drops fall on the earth, slowly, timidly
As if scared to wake the creatures of the soil
As its rises in rhythm and reaches crescendo,
the most soothing lullaby I've ever heard
The chilling breeze helping me sail into my solitude Curl up with a book,watch a movie or two
Dear You Tube,
think I've watched everything twice
Days like this, you realize
Where your priorities really lie,
And time skids to a stop-it's just Saturday everyday
It gets a bit easier to breath- when you have no
Learning to choose what to let go,
Learning to accept what you can't
Flawsome-the word keep rediscovering every week
Dear You Tube,
I'm limiting one hour of my day to you, no more mindless scrolling
Getting nothing done but doing everything
Busy but not really, just marking my calender for
Busy, just letting life row the boat.
I hope you weren't looking for a message at the end
Cause there isn't one,
Except you're not going through it alone.
