Treasure Island

Udaya R. Tennakoon


It is a matter of faces


It is useless to pour water
To a downward pot
Though it is necessarily critical
In a drought of thirst

Person in pretence of sleep
It is difficult to wake up
Though it is necessarily critical
In a moment of danger

Adorable words accent and gestures
For the means of democracy
It is a witch of crazy
Though it is necessarily critical
In a state of power egoism

Forging smirking before the people
To conciliate hearts for votes and power
It is matter of fact today
Though it is necessarily critical
In a reflection before the mirror

Down to earth deconstruction
To purify the heart and mind
It is a matter of duty the day
Though it is necessarily critical
In the age of e- enlightenment

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
