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.
