My Hat is not a Flag

It’s a hat

Not a flag

Nor standard;

No-one died for it.

 

It’s 100% Acrylico

Made in China

Not out of flagcloth;

I bought it in Bayliss Street for six bucks

To keep my head warm in Wagga Wagga

Not to radiate radical dogma.

 

Too colourful for Coolamon, perhaps,

Black and yellow and red and green

The left wing barcode and local hitlist

Or four fifths of the Olympic Rings©,

But it’s a hat! Not a fuckin’ flag;

Well, not one I’ve ever seen.
