There is no chaos today at the table Wonder why, isn’t everybody there? The sullen masked Raven peeks into the window Stunned to see the Cheshire Cat giving a damn stare One of the pesky rats wriggle to tone down the scene Offers to open the window screen All three sit at a distance Each of them seated on a chair ‘The answer is blowin’ in the wind’ the tv anchor states A virus called Corona has been taking the flair. This has caused a huge havoc, For humans are caught unawares Look, it isn’t just them, we are too, Rationing out food and mostly milk is a big feat Arranging her curls, the Cheshire cat informs My fav fish and meat is becoming rare Oh, yes, you are right, replied the frugal rat The lockdown is much needed to curtail the odds But this has caused my moments of privacy and freedom, he chuckles Coz , nowadays, both the Piper and me find ourselves scavenging through the kitchen square Nodding his head, the masked Raven sanitizes his hands While they arrange out all the plates Let me have quick morsel, he pleads, tired of waiting at the market today, Some are still being hoarded by human’s disgrace They continue to chit chat about their concerns And have prepared a daily routine From binge watching the sunrise, sipping on cold milk Nibbling on the sweet corns and flexing their muscles To name a few, they are quite steady on their quarantine Hi, I am bored, What do I do, I declare as they finish off their meals The Cheshire cat comes and leans next to me near the mirror Letting out a subtle smirk through her reflection with folded arms, She suggests, Dear Elvira, The answer is blowin’ in the wind!”
The prompt for today is an imaginary conversation among the Cheshire Cat of Lewis Carroll, The Raven of Edgar Allen Poe and one of the pesky rats, of The Pied Piper of Hamelin, which refuses to be lured away by the Piper. The terrific threesome meet in the corona virus times and get talking. The conversation is to be embellished by the refrain of The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
