what day is it?
what is the time?
the world has shifted on its axis
there’s no more reason, no rhyme

wake up, make the bed
cook a bite to eat
settle in next to the window
observing an empty street

chain smoking’s now the norm
you do it every day
menthol mushroom cloud
that never quite goes away

‘s really scary, too:
how much you’ve begun to drink
lethal but legal cocktails
that don’t help you not to think

each day is the same
telly vomits worldwide unrest
nights spent struggling to sleep
with a constant ache in your chest

13 weeks of lockdown
your bank account says you’re poor
13 weeks of fear
because the future’s so unsure
