In Time for Monday

A virus takes its time
to leave (so do people)

Instruction manual:

Take pills as needed
ease what can be eased
wake up each day
the same, suffering
until one night
having gone to bed
drawn up the covers
switched off the light
noticed it didn’t
feel as terrible
as the night before
slept on that thought
woke up less dull
made tea and eggs
by noon realized
all systems clear
