Eric Bogle’s And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda:

So now every April I sit on my porch
And I see the parade pass before me
I watch my old comrades, how proudly they march
Renewing their dreams and past glories
I see the old men, all bent, stiff and sore
The tired old heroes of a forgotten war
And the young people ask, What are they marching for?
And I ask myself the same question

Miserable old git. Record ANZAC Day crowds turned out yesterday in MelbourneCanberra, across New Zealand, in WarrnamboolBowralWollongongLauncestonOrangeBallarat, and most other cities and towns. Evil Pundit has a roundup of blog reaction.
