Flannery of the Overflow, by Hairy and Lizzie Beare
I had Tweeted him on Twitter which I had for want of better Knowledge sent to where I met him digging dinos years ago. He was pompous when I knew him, so I sent a Tweet out to him Just on spec addressed as follows: hashtag Flannery, Overflow. And an answer came directed in a Tweet quite unexpected And I think the same was written in a drunken student bar. Twas his suffering pupils wrote it, and verbatim I will quote it: Flannery’s gone to Queensland lecturing and we don’t care where he are.
In my wild erratic fancy visions come to to me of Flannery Now awaffling in his beach house where the useless wafflers go. Though the sea is never rising and the rain has not stopped falling, It matters not for Flannery if the public never know. For the left have friends to meet him and the ABC to greet him As the airwaves pay him homage and he mixes with the stars. And he sees the vision splendid of the windmill plains extended And at night the wondrous glory of the stalled electric cars.
What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist. -Salman Rushdie
