Ere, Soccer Was All White - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

The Meet1 was charged, informal as alive,
The Soccer Cup’s host nation to arrive,
The Protean point while was presented,
Not many words were used, more of grey head.

Silent and speechless did the slide show speak,
The screen showing a map mark’d in colour,
Eighteen hosts of ere had had their savour,
The black and white State now awaits a pick.

World’s every land mass had had its moment
Of glory, Soccer World Cup once to host,
Save Africa, one single continent—
The point to those that would choose was not lost.

All of Africa’s north, south, east and west,
Showed was in black, with a border in white,
A point on apartheid’s evil was prest,
Subtlety worked and Meet’s mind was made quite.

This happened ere six agonising years,
The vote when had moved Mandela to tears;
Of all sporting sports soccer seems sans peers,
It can nudge a nation on to high gears.

And that is what Mandela had in mind—
That, black-white hexagons can’t live afar,
Let lines of apartheid be redesigned,
Let every man here get a spot in star.

And South Africa had a statement made
To the world— if or not World Cup it wins:
We too deserve glory painted in red,
Will has her way, if or not there are means.
