about

In the face of so much madness and disaster, fuelled by things beyond anyone's control (Coronavirus pandemic) and within people's control (Brexit, Climate Crisis) , sometimes it might be better to hunker down, keep warm and safe, and get ready for when actions might be more effective.

lyrics

Just a little bit of patience,
And a pinch of salt
Is what our poor blighted nation
Requires of us all.

Some calm, measured breathing
A quick roll of the eyes -
Disguise how you’re seething
With world-weary sighs

Stop torturing yourself – hoping for the truth
That’s not the way things work these days...
Look around you for the proof
The people made their choice, you see.
The system failed the test.
The problem with democracy
Is that it’s just a bit better than the rest...

Time to pull the drawbridge up
And re-assess your goals
Time to nurture that cold, hard nugget
Till the next chance at the polls.
