I love a diverse country

On facebook, an old classmate copy-pasted a nationalistic and divisive rant based on Dorothea Mackellar’s My Country:

After stewing for a while, I came up with a response:

I love a diverse country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of fiercely fought freedom,
Of people with heart, guts and brains.
I love an inclusive society,
Of friendship, passion and free,
Our successes and achievements,
Acceptance – that is Australia’s key.
