The visit

by Renton de Alwis

Groans and mourns
fill pages screens
blackened whitewashed
no halfway road
lessons learnt probed
invited or not

Like tittha kasaya 
or rather the cough syrup goes
down deep throat
cure all rights thought
of men, women and others

Judge, judge not
break, break not
make, mmmmm, let
ammends be made
which time can not rush

Let games be played
winners, losers made
make love, not war
let it be said loud and clear
not just words but
real deeds ... please

Now silence those guns
let flowers bloom
let music be heard
let laughter fill
hearts and minds
let rights of all prevail
not just of some.
