POEM – Strikes

Strikes

Strikes and strikes; strikes and strikes

Sri Lanka seems a land of strikes-

Strikes are mainly aimed at pay –hikes

But hurting the public like sharp spikes

 

Unbecoming of the standards of their vocations

Respectable people of even the noblest professions

Resort to this weapon of “mass” destructions

Plunging the nation a desperate situation.

 

Angels should live and work like angels

Never must they put on vampires’ mantles

If sincerely explored without selfish motives

To solve all problems there are alternatives.

 

Strikers, no doubt have a false start

For, they are striking at the nation’s heart.

 

-MOHAMED KHALEEL-
