History on a flag
Why write your history on a flag?
When all you need is your identity
Rather than who ruled you long ago
That does not reflect the here and now
Are you proud now of the distant past
First settlers were convicts not the free
Now you accept those from whole wide world
What flag for them should be now unfurled?
Oops! I almost forgot native folk
Who fly a flag of their very own
Aboriginees whose land this was
Once counted as fauna and that, because?
Don't write your history on a flag
But let it shout aloud with great pride
This is my country we are all but one
We're proud of our land we get things done
