An Ode to Lockdown 2020

I do the dishes, my nails get chipped,

And, I often forget to do my hair.

I juggle between my work and household chores,

Unlike the times earlier.

My hair is all messy these days,

My dress mostly a pair of pyjamas.

I do the laundry, broom and wipe,

And, cook various meals in a day.

Unsure, if I should crib or be thankful,

Of the time that made me do all this.

Making me value all workers, domestic help,

And respecting the hard labour they put in.

The job we sometimes think to be menial,

Is extremely cumbersome.

I’ve treated every being with respect,

I do now more than ever.

Lockdown has taught me not to take things for granted,

Since they don’t come your way easily.

Life can go topsy-turvy any moment,

Make the most of it before it flees!!!
