What if I tell you
Your are in a lucid dream
And what you are seeing
Isn’t happening now
COVID and the lockdown
And the financial ruin
Is just a dream
Running as you sleep

Like Neo the great
In the Matrix film
Will you swallow
The bright red pill
To wake up in the
Drab routine
Monotonously slogging
All your life
With toxic workplace
Gossiping behind
And a deranged boss
Hounding your life
Weekends spent
Cleaning the house
No time for self
With running around.

Or will you take the
Blue pill
And continue with your
Terrifying dream.
With lots of time to
ponder and think
On what exactly
Is life about.
