Keeping social interaction at bay is easy-peasy. Simply stay in ones home. But keeping boredom at bay, now that comes with its own issues.

Boundaries Of Reason.

The unwelcome virus arrived one cold day,
It’s settled right in and looks set to stay,
Like a Jehovah’s Witness it won’t go away.

With no cure or vaccination known
We’re advised to stay at home, alone-
What better company to be in but my own?

I thought I’d love lounging about, being lazy,
Rolling in bed, hours and days, getting hazy,
But I’m getting paranoid or going stir crazy.

I thought I’d take it all in my stride,
This keeping your distance, staying inside-
Now my gripping company I can’t abide.

I’ve re-read every last book, cover to cover,
I’ve re-recounted that night with my first lover,
My eyesight’s shot ‘tween books and thinking of her.

    I fully sympathise with one’s illusions being shattered. I thought it would be a hoot to have Partner around all the time for a change. It’s obvious now that I should have done a better Impact Assessment before agreeing to these terms…

    True. I don’t mind being alone, most of the time. But boredom weighs heavy on one’s hands and onan raises its ugly head. Some things can’t be locked down. Hmm, maybe TMI? Ah well, few readers will trawl down to the comments so what the hell?
