Never a Ex-Rhodie!

Who is a Ex-Rhodie I have never met one.
I am a Rhodie, I will never be a Ex-Rhodie.
Rhodesia might be dead and buried,
But still I am a Rhodie not a Ex-Rhodie.
And when I pass on I will still be a Rhodie.
Rhodesia lives within me, even though she does not exist on any map.
That must make me a Rhodie,
And very proud of the fact that I am "The Rhodie".
One day I will be known as the "Extinct Rhodie".
BUT never, never a Ex-Rhodie!

Stan ("Mazambane") Glover.

Foot note: The use of a instead of an is a subtle, rebellious insult to the English language and race.
