Best Poem of Shirani Rajapakse

Silently Waiting

They sit in a row, heads
Bowed low, and accept
The law’s blows.
Forced to breathe pepper
As the law hovers
In front spraying in
Hope they would leave.
Or die. That would be
Better for the law. No
Doubt.
The cameras flash but
Don’t intervene to save
The students. Prevent
The police onslaught.
Defenders of democracy
What say the press standing
Silently watching,
Clicking.

Two Cities Two Protests

Pepper spray for Wall Street,
rubber bullets for Tahrir Square.

The police have taken over, a law unto
themselves while sanity flies out to

be trampled in the dust of protest
worldwide. Across cultures and fault lines.
