Groceries on my mind

I still get up drenched in sweat
waking up from the nightmares of
the scarcity of essentials during the lockdown
and the woeful empty deep freeze
the chef hat donned reluctantly
has become my present identity
I know which side of my bread is buttered
I am not blind to realities
I try to stay focussed on the present
news headlines don't bother me
all I worry about is
the free flow of commodities!
