If Ever I Had A Country...(Continued) : Lvi And Lvii

IF ever I had a country: LVI - LVII

LVI

IF ever I had a Stateless country
And if ever I were a Stateless Person citizen patriot ready to lay my life down for the statelessness of my country
I'd ask myself first who rules in this Country without a State to make it a country
Whether this Stateless State is in a State without a country and/or without membership in the international community
Or a country without legitimate citizens to elect those who represent the State with or without democracy
Or whether the One-Party State is better for the Stateless Person citizen than the divided-state of the system of the non-Nicomachean Two-Party dog-eat-dog bi-cameral idiocy
That is, if ever I were a Stateless Person citizen with Stateless Nationality in my country
And even if I never ever had no citizenship in no Stateless country

LVII

IF ever I had a Stateless country
And if ever I were a Stateless Person citizen patriot upholding with my life the Statelessness of my country
Would I exist in a state of Statelessness along with other Stateless Persons in a State without a country
In a State without a State University to award certificates of statelessnesses as a statutory degree
A State without the usual ecstatic state of political inadequacies iniquities and other abnormal psychological incompatibility
In other words a State over which all normal countries would be eager to wage heroic war in order to exercise their authority
That is, if ever I were a Stateless Person citizen patriot upholding with my life the Statelessness of my country
And even if I never ever had to call my own no Stateless country

Awake At Night by Matsuo Basho.) **Bitter experience. A cold night; brrrrrrrrr. Can’t sleep. The cold is so bitter that it cracks the water jar.
An ordinary activity of nature at night comes out as an extraordinary observation. Such is the power of words employed in these three lines. Great poetic feast.
This one made me laugh. Don't know why... it just did. Love it!
