Instructions In A Dangerous Time

We were truly lovers in a dangerous time

Just like Bruce Cockburn’s famous rhyme

When I think of Covid-19

I will think of the days

Where all i cared about was a line

Nothing was fine

The collective cry of humanity

Rang out around me

As we all took a knee

For 8 minutes and 46 seconds

because black lives matter.

Australia was a glow

with red flame

Donald trump was the name

On everyone’s lips

The chaos my crash and explode around

but you can find a way

to feel calm and safe

And keep keeping on

against all trials and costs

be your own best friend

Even in this madness you can find yourself again
