What if

What if.. What if; it wasn't a lockdown forenoon Mommies whisking to kitchenette Daddy's out with newspaper headlines Little cubs denned in their late quilt and wishing no schooling today Rest world racing themselves to indulge in work deadlines What if; it wasn't a lockdown noon Chefs busy preparing victuals to serve in eateries Office canteens loaded with lunch boxes and gossips Some heading for evening tales What if; it wasn't a lockdown evening Coffee shops buzzing with bud pairs, roasted coffee beans and whiffs of smoke Peeps roaming and returning their abodes before the dark was deep Little cubs falling asleep in their study and no Surf, no Netflix What if; it wasn't a lockdown night Dinner table would filled with traffic and homework folklore Bedtime would doubly the fairy's list- Children wishing for no school tomorrow, Men for hike up his business, Women emancipation from irons of household chores and society norms What if; it wasn't a lockdown Contemporary would have been so lost in it's own bloods and veins June month would have brought us fruity summer of 2020 And I would have written a poetry of love and lust
