The New Normal

Oluwademilade Seyi-Idowu

Lagos, Nigeria

I wake up as the sun rises

To a new day full of surprises

Maybe lockdown’s finally over

Or maybe covid is spreading all over

Face masks, sanitisers, toilet paper too

People throwing parties to prove they’re cool

Covid is getting worse every day

Yet it seems like it is here to stay

I don’t remember the last time I saw real people

I guess lockdown proves relationships are fickle

I close my eyes and go to sleep

And hope that covid was all a dream
