IF EVER I HAD A COUNTRY : LXVII - LXVIII

If Ever I Had A Country...(Continued) : LXVII - LXVIII 

                                         LXVII

IF ever I had a country what even Guatemalans would avoid in their hurry
And if ever I were the unfortunate illiterate Mnister of Culture
I'd make it point of telling every marching migrant what awaits them at destination: " spooktacular "
Where goblins witches alchemists with Gorgon dreadlocks veritable Dvarapalas would enslave them in Konzentrazions-lager
Would make them eat their own tongues for want of soup-kitchen swill or horse fodder
Would drive them up greasy poles and down barbed tanks full of pirana in mad rage hunger
That is, if ever I were the inculte Minister of Culture
And even if I never ever had no country worth a penny

                                 LXVIII

IF ever I had a free-for-all take-it or leave-it country
And if ever I were condemned to accept as a penalty the post of Culture Secretary
I'd publish a never-ending list of all the banned Holy-Days in the calender
Easter St. Patrick's Day X-mas Epiphany July the 4th and the 14th Ascension Diwali Ramadan-Eid-il-fitr Universal Day of Labour
And in their place make Halloween every other day holier
In order NASDAQ break all records through sale of sweets cakes ice-cream snickers toffees and karambar
That is, if ever I were forced to serve as Culture Secretary
And even if I never ever had no country so silly
