Flags Australia Day 2015


Let the wind blow free
that flags may fly
flags of our nationality
flags of our aboriginality
High over the square
listlessly sweeping
political statement
under Victoria's benign gaze
(who would have thought the old woman had so much fun in her).
Let the wind blow free
lest we forget.

flying over Victoria Square Adelaide are two enormous billowing flags, the national flag and the Aboriginal flag.

Stephen Clark 2005
