Change To Alter - Poem by Jayatissa Liyanage

On the platform shimmering fire
In the pan of campaign
Every grain of this or that
Added to the flavor and savor
Voter-consumers on the floor
Cherished in cosmos incisive roars
To the joy of chefs

Post election intermission
In tranquil mindset wineglass
Enjoying Chef's special
Viewed the product, through mirror
Of public opinion at large

Back of a connotative conscience
Of someone shilly-shally, sounded
‘Pots were out
Kettles are in’
Celestial entity, regardless, carried-on
