The Times are Strange

This is a  2017 song, written at a very strange time.  Who would have thought, 12 months ago, that we’d be extracting ourselves rather painfully from the EU, with all of our rest-of-European friends worrying about their livelihoods and their place in this country (which they have adopted)?

Even more strange … America now has a president who has never held political office, believes that it’s OK to assault women sexually if you’re “famous” and plans to build a huge wall between the US of A and Mexico.  I could list all of the other unbelievable things about Donald J Trump that scare the s?!t out of me, but that would be depressing.  So I’ve focussed my anger in this song – taking some of the blame for the sorry mess on me and my ilk.  We all thought we knew what was right and what was wrong and we allowed a lot of people to become disfranchised, angry and reckless.  That’s why we are where we are and some of it is my fault.  And yours.  Sorry.
