I first wrote and recorded this song back in 2011.
After having a listen a few weeks ago I felt it may be prudent to do a revised version of it in the light of all the stuff going on in the world right now.
The 'blurb' I wrote at the time went like this:
In this modern world, which seems to be inspired by greed, business owners have changed their attitudes since a couple of centuries ago. At one time expansion could mean giving a couple of extra jobs to a cousin or nephew but now it means trying to establish operations in as many countries as possible. Most companies are looking at world domination. This, in turn, creates more need to travel which, in it?s own turn, creates more consumption of fossil fuels and more deadly pollution. Hardly anyone is able to work near their homes so have to commute ? more pollution. Big multi-national stores are now built out of town so we have to travel in order to do our shopping ? more pollution. Oh, if we could only turn back time to before the invention of motorised transport! If we could only ?down-size? back to local corner shops selling home produce!
