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!”

 

 

[note* this poem was inspired from the movie “La Haine”
So, many thanks for the director :)]
