Weekend Reformation Act, 2020

When 2 days posed as broken lock
After an exile of 5 days long slog
How easy it seemed to shake off corporate dust
And resurface the wanderlust.
With fancy hashtags like
#sunkissed #weekend getaways #mountain diaries,
Insta would come fluent in our travel stories.
March 2020 marked the end of springs
alongwith last fearless human batch marching in strings...
What noone heard was an approaching storm
Of Nature rebooting flora & fauna with a chance
To flourish & revive, away from human glance.
Worst fate awaited for us 2 legged snobs
As an unknown demon waited right outside our door...
Down the drain went our routine
And so did the concept of weekend
While Popular travel apps masked themselves in submission
YouTube, Prime and Netflix came frontline in impossible mission
of entertainment in prison.
The weekend business no longer involved
Fleeting off to favorites food joints anymore
It waged a revolution of cleaning spree to the corners unknown....
Slowly easing us in to the whistleblower of our house-
Which Soon turned into experimental lab run my noob chefs like us
All thanks to cuisines raging in cooking tutorials,
Tuning into one of which got me noticing,
I am all out of groceries!
Nibbing procrastination in the pause button,
All armed with my mask on,
Slipping into bra and pyjamas after so long,
Off I go into a purchase war sidestepping every human contact or small talk in the shop...
Where my heart skipped multiple beats with each item labelled out of stock...
That hit me with a realisation of splurging groceries on insta fancies could come with a heavy cost.
I anxiously gauge rest of the food section keeping my fingers crossed
To cool off a jittery grocery shopping,
I full my plate with a new webseries binge
But to not lose track of time, I keep the diary in my line of sight, that stare me silly till I get down to write...
That's how the ritual of bleeding words lasts every night...
Blowing up all our weekends introduced us to a new plan profound
Lockdown has smartly nudged unpopular fun from background to foreground.
