The New Remote

It is but remote these days,

The pandemic has given way,

To a new, different world,

That seems like its here to stay.

Virtual working, virtual learning,

In-person is now a myth,

Technology and Web a must,

For the old and the young.

Old nan watching her haughty grandson,

Hoping that he is not a layabout,

While the playground is deserted,

Waiting patiently for its comeback.

To be online, to be social,

When shall we go back,

To the good old days,

Turning the present into a throwback.
