A song I wrote in December 2012. It’s funny coming back to these old songs and looking at them again through today’s lens nearly a decade later. This song is sort of speaks to climate change and it is sort of a cartoonish and whimsical fantasy story. It’s easy to make the jump from flood to pandemic. Of course, things can never be the same after this.
But now I want to ask, what are the things that have been lingering that could be washes away? How can we seize this opportunity? Can we as white people educate ourselves–cleanse our minds, our hearts–of the racist and sexist stories we habitually tell ourselves, and make this country what it never was intended to be: equitable for all?
