Nothing to Be Done - Toodle Pip, 2017
There is nothing to be done
There is no top ten anything.
EVERYTHING is rare.
As we peel back the layers of brand names, important job titles and media lies is it any wonder that more and more people are accepting that we, our friends, our family and our neighbours really are suffering from panic attacks and clinical depression and treatable anxiety?
On realising who we have been covering for all this time (self serving billionaires and a neutral cosmos) is it any wonder that so many of us are having a tough time dealing with the fact that we have all been duped.
Politics is failing us. Democracy is flailing. Do gooders are googling themselves into a tizzy. What's right? What's wrong? What can we do?
I'll tell you what we can do;
Write a fucking wish list!
I hope this cheers me up...
