O Holy Roman
A song about a child who asserts his independence from other children who wear the mask
During the height of the lockdowns I met a woman who had a young son named Roman. She was quite adamant about not having her son wear the mask despite all the pernicious negative feedback.
The idea for the title is taken from “The Holy Roman Empire” with the '“Empire” being the pre-New Normal world which was “wrecked” by you know who.
Here is how the song ended up in music video form.
And here I am stuck in my house during the lockdowns working on O Holy Man. Pardon my unkempt appeaerance.

I cried. I will post this. I am still crying.
I sense a positive outlook in your song: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
