The Plague Descended 

The house is now prison 
Spouse the warden 
two meals a day to conserve 
television is the outside world 
order goods from supermarket 
no sports to watch 
or fish to catch 
family and religion are virtual 
never heard of Zoom before the plague 
really don’t miss much except freedom
