Square Envelope
by M Nelligan


We're told to stretch the envelope wide

And think outside the square.

But when it comes to Politics,

I BET YOU and I DARE

Separate the Politics,

Yes that of Church and State,

Then put it all together again

And Humpty Dumpty's there!

Cath'lic, Pres'terian, Episcopal, Wee Free;

Shiite, Sunni and Kurd.

I'tis the plan, "Do NOT Agree"

For Campbell, M'Donald, Gregor!

    YES, Fight! YES, Hate!

    Despise, Separate.

    Nae Agree, Nae See

    Ne'er Dance and Be Free!

UNITED, you’re Strong!

"By Jove! NOT THAT!"

We'll keep the CelticRanger Team

Within the Walls a' Baghdad!

UNITED IRISH Two Hundred on,

History repeats no doubt.

Just watch the Telly. Have a look 'round.

So much Misinformation!

Orange; Red, White and Green.

Lion and Harp sewn on the weave.

T'would be Grand, and possibly be

To stretch the Envelope called 'Country'!

I BET YOU and I DARE
