To The Australia Day Hypocrite
There’s some bullshit in this nation, that’s quickly spreading round,
That becomes more apparent on Australia Day,
Like the flags that some are waving on close inspection found,
Where made in some Asian country far away.
I’m proud to be an Aussie you can hear wavers cheer,
But it seems that their conviction isn’t tough,
You’d like to buy Australian but flags made here are dear,
So you’re proud but not quite proud enough?
You say you love Australia but that’s an easy thing to bleat,
Excuse me if I doubt your sincerity,
If you don’t bother to bin your rubbish and just drop it in the street,
It doesn’t sound like you love this place to me.
There’s also an over abundance of these nationalistic clowns,
Who are loud in their jingoistic cries,
They say they love Australia then steal what isn’t nailed down,
And what cant be taken is usually vandalised.
And don’t you love these wankers who in a patriotic voice,
Want bring immigration to a halt,
But mostly those who get here become Australian out of choice,
If you’re born here you’re only Aussie by default.
They come into our country spoil our culture, take our jobs,
For decades this has been said in repetition,
It is banter of the ignorant and by lazy Aussie slobs,
Who are afraid of a little competition.
So you think you’re a proud Aussie and for this country you would fight,
But I question your allegiance in your plan,
If in the streets and pubs you’re blueing then you’re logic isn’t right,
Cause you’re fighting with a fellow countryman.
True blueness cant be measured by how hard we wave a flag
Or what borders we were born within,
Its not measured by our appearance or any other tag.
Its about how much were prepared to put back in.
Those who truly love this country do more than wave our colours,
Self infatuation is not in their routine,
They’ll sacrifice their spare time in the pursuit of helping others,
And in the limelight they’re very rarely seen.
Are you proud to be an Aussie because of what others have achieved?
You think that somehow this reflects on you,
Its more likely that you’re grateful of the benefits you receive,
As Having a go isn’t something that you do.
Its easy to claim Aussie pride when there’s no test you have to pass,
But Ill give you a cap to try and fit,
If when contributing to our nation you cant get off your arse,
You’re not full of pride you’re only full of shit.
That's telling it like it is!!!! perhaps a bit to much so for some.
Speaking of strange costumes here is a conservative example, as I prepare a feast for Wazza and myself.
Sadly all that activity leads to the need to clean up, here I am (complete with a nipple flash) doing the dishes... the old fashioned way.
For any non-Australian readers please note the "Weeties" breakfast cereal in the background, one of our favourite's!!!
