IF EVER I HAD A COUNTRY : LXXI - Continued-

IF EVER I HAD A COUNTRY - LXXI

		LXXI	

IF ever I had a country targeted by no refugee
And if ever I were appointed by the Inter-Planetary Committee KING of this territory by Inter-Galactic Royal Decree
I'd build wide-gauge rail-roads cushy chopper-pads air-strips twice the size of Kennedy-cum- Singapore airports spacecraft landing coiffured vistas fair-weather lulled-water harbours boulevards ten-times the girth of Champs Elysée
And there at migrant reception processing posts construct mammoth manufacturing plants rolling out rocks the size Sisyphus repeatedly rolled up Mount Olympus then down into the Aegean Sea
And proclaim by sovereign edict that any of my subjects caught FEEDING any rock-throwing migrant-refugee - though out of my great big charitable heart I'd authorise every refugee child left-over Halloween candy
I'd have him or her scorched by steel plate-melting torch and dipped into sizzling hot cauldrons of oil linseed and gingerly
That is, if ever I were enthroned by the Inter-Planeto-Galactic Consortium KING by royal decree over my territory
And this, even if I never ever had no country bed-rock to no refugee
