Covid changed us


Snow days were fun days. No work.

        Now we join remote learning on snow days.

The corporate world was in offices. Suited up.

        Now we work from home in our jammy pants.

Professional exams were done in centers. Fierce supervision.

        Now we write from our bedrooms under online proctors. They can see our beds!

It's a new world. It's a changed world.

We have moved to a world we cannot see. A different dimension.

        Now I doubt the sanctity of all I see. For I am one with virtuality.
