The 24 hour countdown has begun,
The Monday morning you've been dreading,
5 more minutes to home run,
Need to finally begin.
Drink enough water - be awake,
The news is on - switch it off,
What a terrible mistake.
Thankfully your jobs not at stake.
Aeroplanes no more circling overhead,
The to-do list overpowered,
Time is winning - you've got to get ahead.
Introspecting so hard laying on your bed.
Imagining the world beyond,
The confines of home,
Reconnecting with family - the missing bond.
Has it really been that long? Already dawn!
