Quarantine Blues

When the quarantine started, Manbun told Henna it would be great. He would have lots of time to write songs. Then, when the quarantine ended, they would hit the road and become famous.

Six weeks later, Henna was growing frustrated.

“How am I supposed to sing songs you haven’t written,” Henna asked.

“Sorry, Love. I just haven’t been inspired. The only thing I have come up with is My Jeans Are So Tight, I Can’t Wear Socks.”

“I told you not to buy those things.”

“Well, at least the knees on mine didn’t rip the first week I wore them.”

“Is it my fault my knees swell when I drink too much tea?”

“Maybe a smaller cup would help.”

“Maybe a different boyfriend would help.”

Time keeps on ticking, ticking, ticking, into the future…*
