In the days

of the pandemic,

locked in the house

with cabin fever,

the winds came,

trees fell,

and the power

went off

   no lights

   no heat

   no Wi-Fi

   no television

   no Alexa

What next?


   meteor showers?

   nuclear attack?

   armed insurrection?

   earth splitting in half?

Time for a nap
