Found poetry for April 13, 2022 National Poetry Month Poetry Challenge

From Hidden Brain’s “The One-Room Commute” comes thoughts on “If you’re working from home, you might be reveling in your daily commute to the dining room table. Or you might be saying, “Get me out of here.” In the final episode of our Work 2.0 series, economist Nicholas Bloom joins us from his spare bedroom to ponder whether working from home is actually working.” Experience the idea in found haiku poetry.

Working From Home

Hidden like millions
people around the world work
from home pop over

Zoom important help
kids practice bag pipes toilet
only place quiet

surreal twist he’s
research day in and day out
thought we’d be great work
