Lockdown created situation
Unique in its regulations
House arrest of a city
Exception given to nobody

Passing each day
Any which way
Time standing still
A lot of time to kill

Fear of the disease
Totally I'll at ease
Focus on every symptom
Relating it to the diaphragm

Home bound and clueless
Add to it fear psychosis
WhatsApp filled with rumors
News channels creating neurosis

Situation so bad
Inability to act
Passively observing
Makes it more frustrating

Place of work closed
Careers dangerously poised
Incomes dwindling no sign of improving
Let alone the future even the present eroding

Inside the hell hole
Inmates in every soul
Only darkness in sight
No one outside to show the light

Loss of near and dear
Cannot even stand by the rear
To much of burden to bear
Only solution in the tears

Plight of families
In distress with deaths
All alone in this mess
Lockdown created by the Virus
