The Iconology of Talk-Back ID

The Iconology of Talk-Back ID

a kangaroo wearing the baggy green,
boomerang stuck up its arse under the true
blue flapping skies of the southern cross

pushes a Victa across the Harbour Bridge
bouncing together with a brave contingent
of Holdens in Akubras saying Sorry

to heroic diggers for exhibiting Bradman
at the Opera House next to Phar Lap
eating a supersized billy can of Vegemite

on Anzac Day among grey nurse sharks
waving pavlovas to commemorate
the Cronulla Lambing Flat Riots

that done our bronzed lifesavers proud
for the defence of our freedom, gum trees
& punching above our weight & wattle

on the world stage like Cathy, Kylie
Warnie Lawsy Jonesy & the right
to piss on Uluru
