The Replubic of Australia

I think we need a Republic to stand on our feet at last

and get out from the shadow ‘the old country’ has cast.

While it cannot change the past; what’s done ‘twas us who did

At least behind the Union Jack our identity won’t be hid.

It’s time that we just grew up a bit for all its good and bad

and moved out of the house; away from Mum and Dad.

Until we stand alone, I feel, we’ll never stand up tall

We’ll make our own decisions as growns up to stand or fall.


About a foolhardy florilegium

Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
