  • 6crealist

    Maybe it’s upside down on purpose? I’ve seen many flags held the wrong way round at these protests.

    Ignorance is bliss.

  • carnmoney.guy

    An upside down Union flag denotes distress – have you seen the price of petrol and fireworks this weather ?

  • babyface finlayson

    Theirs not to reason why
    They’ve got a fleg to fly
    Half a fleg half a fleg, half a fleg onward
    Canon to right of them, Cannon to left of them,
    Pastor behind them, bellowed and thunder’d.
    Someone has most definitely blundered.

    From an original poem by Smita Srivastav:

    flaming tides of Phlegethon,
    flow over realms of azure
    at twilight hour,
    as sun at demise leaves
    skies aflame with ignited footprints
    like daffodils smiling
    in redolent bowers.

    I admit it’s not in the same league as the Tennyson.

    Way Up in the Sky
    (Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

    Provide children with small flags or let them make their own. Then let them wave their flags and march as they recite/sing the following poem:

    Wave, wave, wave the flag,
    Hold it very high.
    Watch the colors gently wave,
    Way up in the sky.
    March, march, march around,
    Hold the flag up high.
    Wave, wave, wave the flag,
    Way up in the sky.

    This authentic educational material is not a joke. But we are.

    From ‘Union Jack’ by John Waite

    Missin’ at school, bustin’ the rules, hates everything in sight
    Needs some new shoes, dad’s on the booze, she’s never there
    Far away kid, all on his own, can’t tell the wrong from right
    Thin as a rake, tough as a nail tonight, tonight
    Here are your hopes for the future you’ll see
    If you hang ’round the neck of a loser like me
    There’s no one else in your life, you don’t need anyone
    Come with me in the night, I will give you the matches
