IF EVER I HAD A COUNTRY : XXV and XXVI

IF ever I had a country : XXV - XXVI

                                       XXV

IF ever I had a country
And if ever I were the Secretary of State for National Unity
I'd appoint myself the Director of the National Football Industry
Order every child over-weight skinny lame dumb deaf spastic or rickety
To go to the school grounds every morning bouncing or kicking balls free
With one solitary thought in mind : ultimate World Cup victory
That is, if ever I were the State Sec for National Unity
And even if I never ever had no country

                                         XXVI

IF ever I had a country
And if ever I were the Minister for National Unity
I'd appoint every World Cup national footballer Vice-Chancellor of University
Have him create as many Chairs as he wishes for the Football Ph.D.
Teach every student the art of foul-tackling anybody not from his country
Till I'd make it second nature not to play ball but to kick the enemy
That is, if ever I were the Minister for National Unity
And even if I never ever had no country

Bonjour Lyric Man ! I don't know exactly what you mean, but I think I have a pretty good idea. Either way, I'm honoured that at least one "souper" appreciates my country-less country poems. Every good wish. Best to "Bo" as well: "BOW WOW!"
