australia day

there will be a day of forty-two-c and and there will be flies to be swatted. there will be beer and there will be food to be eaten with beer. there will be zinc cream and floppy hats and backyard cricket. there will be two day tattoos of boxing kangaroos. there will be singlets with southern stars and bikinis made from flags, made in china. there will be the waltzing of matildas and the trueing of blue. there will be maaaates and sheilas and the bagging of poms. but there will be no patriotism, we’re all too cool for that. happy australia day cobbers.
