Stuck Indoors for Lockdown – Indiana

Published in The Pilgrim, Issue 6, Autumn 2020.

Stuck indoors on Monday,
Work set by my school.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
No wait, I can’t sleep at all.


Stuck indoors on Tuesday,
Work to be handed in.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
A cycle seems to begin.


Stuck indoors on Wednesday,
I’ve only slept for two hours.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
The control of this isn’t ours.


Stuck indoors on Thursday,
Are you getting bored too?
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
I’ve got nothing more to do.


Stuck indoors on Friday,
Things still haven’t changed.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
The lockdown has remained.


Stuck indoors on Saturday,
I make sure my work has been done.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
This cycle has definitely begun.


Stuck indoors on Sunday,
It’s the last day of the week.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
This lockdown is getting to me.


I’ll still be stuck indoors tomorrow,
And being 13 that is not for me.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, sleep,
I guess for now it’ll have to be.
