නව සඳ බැලීම

 

කතිර ගහල
බලන්න හිටිය
නව සඳ
පරණ එකමයි නේද………
……….

අර පරණ ලප
එහෙම්මමයි!

The fall

 

A man falling from a sky-scraping building,
enjoying the cool breeze, on his way down
kept saying to himself ……………………….

“So far so good!
So far so good!
So far so good!”

A society, falling from the edge of corruption,
from the ledge of conformism, on its fall ……….
will keep saying to itself …………

“So far so good!
So far so good!
So far so good!”

But in the end ……..!
when it hits the “Rock Bottom!”
the hard pavement grey
it’ll have no say ……!

“සල්ලිත් නෑ! සනීපත් නෑ!”

So, many thanks for the director :)]
