CURFEW 34

DAY 34 – Sept 5 hey Australia hear us roar we are from Victoria the pariah state you all love to abhor we were winning then we lost we have paid a heavy cost but we’re coming through and stronger than before oh-oh-oh, yes we fucked up but we were fighting blind we paid a heavy price but please bear this in mind we did what we had to when we closed everything it was not our fault it was Wu-han…. we will keep those numbers low just a few short weeks to go until we’re driving from our homes across this land a shout out to those embryos who got the vaccine on the go every organism wants to lend a hand oh-oh-oh, yes we fucked up but we’ve had enough of pain we’ve paid in tears and blood we won’t get fooled again it was not our fault we didn’t do anything we don’t eat bats we’re not invincible it was Wu-han…. *insincere apologies to the long-suffering Ray Burton and Helen Reddy.
