Lockdown lobotomy

My brain explodes at least
twice a day
my ears become deaf and
my mouth has no say,

my eyes open on
this mess I’ve become
how can I explain this
away?

I have to suck it up and
wait it out
but I’ve just about
had enough of it,

I’m ready to scream and shout
then my brain explodes again.
