about

'Flusk' is a dialect word used by the poet John Clare. I like this word, though I've not used it quite right here.

lyrics

Not a threat
Not a prediction
Just a truth:

We will take back your fields
Sunder your plantations

Until then
We are turned back
Neutral and observing
Your fleeting follies

Flusk and futile
Awkward and ugly
Zero-sum
Unadaptive
Over-run

A teetering imbalance
Falsified and temporary
Mining the past

Unplant, replant
Unplant, replant
Unplant, replant
