No Damn Illusion. Let's not go back to 'normal' after...

So in time,  when this current pandemic lessens, or becomes treatable, let's not return to 'normal'.
Let's hope that as a species we can learn from the whole experience and do things better in future.
Better for the environment, better for animals of all kinds, better for us as a result.
Prevention is better than cure after all.


We’re in it together, a fait accompli
There’s no illusion no, nothing to see
Where once stood a forest, now’s a broken-down tree
It’s no damn illusion, you take it from me 

We’re in it together how should we count the cost?
Of all of the treasures now stolen or lost
The treasures that we can never regain
From the greed and destruction, of which we are blamed 

There once flew an owl, the wisest of friends
There once swam a whale in the ocean’s depths
Once grazed some livestock, before factory pens
Now god help creation that we vilipend 

We should’ve had faith, we all should’ve prayed
But the god of all gods said that we had betrayed
Betrayed all the trust, that he had bestowed
And we’d ravaged the garden, of all that he sowed 

We’re in it together, how cosy and nice
Where no-one is culpable no, no-one thinks twice
We’re in it together, a fait accompli
It’s no damn illusion, you take it from me
It’s no damn illusion, you get nothing for free
