Evening Clock Gone

Outside, all is quiet now

No cars, fireworks or streetraces

Outdoor cafes receive some guests now

Distant freedom lures many faces

Today’s News

The Evening clock will be lifted

From next week

Outdoor activity, shops, reopen soon

A row about an offensive cartoon

& The cartoonist isn’t even that gifted

29 February 2020

We were told to stay indoors — if we can
I belonged to those who are allowed to work
How little has changed, actually, in a year’s time
Also now we say, ‘Only a few more months’
But now, a Mediterranean Sun vacation is less likely
The State has paid business owners’ rent, also now
Today, people say, covid is to stay coming years
Most of us aren’t used to what now adheres
People elected the same State back, despite its ills
In the end, they trust its anti covid19 policy.

March 18: Flash Fiction Challenge

Normalcy

Fun shopping, coffee outdoors

Guests, evening entertainment

Those were the days of carefree merriment

I realise gratitude is in place, even when so much bores
