On-line meetings during lockdown
He sat on his cellular phone in the room
Having just finished a meeting on Zoom
What a frightening sight
His expression, dark as night
The seed of a monster starting to bloom
Endless back-to-back meetings on Zoom
Fill employees with a sense of gloom
The leader strikes like a snake
When colleagues make a mistake
When will it end and normality resume?
Staring at a cell phone screen all day
Instead of going out to run and play
Turns eyes vacant and round
The lack of energy is profound
Their way of life has gone astray
