One More Day

The sun is up in the morning
the day begins in modest.

The maids come at 8 am
the watchman leaves.

Then come the driver,
the gardener at 9.

The chores go in a routine
cleaning, cooking, watering

washing, all to the set timetable.
nothing more to do,

One more day passes
with no events to celebrate,

Courtesy being the lockdown
from March 2020.
