To the memory of my father rahimahullah
Itâ€™s cool to drive home
An almond-eyed cool blonde
Picked up in Paris or in Rome.
Itâ€™s cool to score a goal in Liverpool
Against Real Madrid or Lazio Rome.
It must be fine to savour wine
And spaghetti while listening to Pavarotti.
Itâ€™s great to have Â£ 8,000 in hand
Or to land a higher rank in a central bank.
Itâ€™s a delight to the eyes
To watch sunrise in the dunes of Morocco.
Itâ€™s beyond telling the joy of jogging in Monaco.
Let alone the joy of shopping in Hanoi
