Tomos Roberts – aka Tom Foolery offers an insight into “after the coronavirus pandemic” A New Zealand-born poet’s bedtime fairytale video, The Great Realisation
The video, titled “The Great Realisation,” was uploaded to YouTube by British artist and poet “Probably Tomfoolery” on April 29. It depicts a father reading his child a bedtime story, however, this tall tale is not quite Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
The father opens up the book and describes to his child the world before coronavirus, including severe economic inequality and irrepressible damage to the world’s oceans.
“Well sometimes, you’ve got to get sick my boy, before you start feeling better.”
“It was a world of waste and wonder. Of poverty and plenty. Back before we understood why hindsight is 2020,” says the father to his child.
“We’d grown so used to bad news but some good news was in the making,” the father adds.
However, just as the story grows grim, the father pivots to talk about a virus, and its impact onto society. He notes that we now have reverted back to a better understanding of what brings us joy, and how we can not only heal ourselves, but also heal the world around us.
This has viewers all thinking about the future and impact they have on the world and is making the rounds on YouTube and social media.
