Un Australian


I dunno if I’m being ridiculous
but the term “un-Australian” is
as un-Australian as our origins allow.

Because a few poofters from Lygon
Street or the ABC might conclude
differently doesn’t mean I’m wrong.

Our diverse History says we’re
not the same; any mug can see
we’re ‘hundreds & thousands’. 

And thank whomever for that! Now
if you want to have a few beers and
a barbie this arvo then go on...

It’s summer and this is Australia –
just don’t go round calling others
un-Australian ‘cause they won’t go along
