I've Been Unionized

I swear I love 
it's an amazing place to live,
but I do believe my British roots are showing. 
 OK, I know that I have to look way back on the family tree to claim English blood,
 but it's there and it just doesn't want to be ignored.
This is my third
(and I'll make no promises that this is my last).
Started off with a  grey base.
Laid out my flag with tape,
I swear I have a Bachelor's Degree in this and yes you can hire me if you want one done.
Painted it with leftover paint from my dresser
 Loved the crisp lines, but wanted to try something a little different.
So I added dark wax which dirty and aged it up.
I love how it looks now, very old world.

I really should keep one of these Union Jack pieces then maybe I'll stop making them.
