City on Lockdown

The city went quiet
Everyone shut themselves away
Fearing the virus
That could possibly kill us

For three weeks I didn’t budge
Sitting in my chair
Working from home
Doing all the my employers asked

Finally, I had to get out
If for no other reason than to feel the breeze
I drove my car onto the streets
And put my windows down

It felt like an alien world
So many places closed
Hardly anyone on once busy streets
My radio was the loudest thing

But I felt better
The city, while sleeping, did still exist
Her citizens locked away for now
Would return when the time was right
