Juxtaposition

Take a slow stroll with the soul lonely
To a pub on Nowhere road
Where men with shaved heads and tattooed knuckles salute
Then, shake their fists at a union jack
Because they have nothing else to believe in

Compare this to the slow stroll of the soul lonely special need Pakistani boy
Who walks towards the football match
With a rucksack on his back and the whispered promise of “72 virgins in paradise”
