Ists and  Ism
Posted on March 21st, 2015

Susantha Pallage Wijesinghe 

I see through facets of a prism,

Beautiful hearts, few faces of evil

Nurturing doctrine of terrorism

At the behest of the sordid devil.


Golden hearts breath fire in optimism,

To scorch the doctrine of fascists,

Yet dreaming in the sea of realism,

A state of malignancy exists.


Evil minds see visions of racialism,

A precursor to be separatists,

What good to the world is fanaticism,

Leading life as segregationists.


The young and old, like socialism

In democratic splendour, to coexsist,

Peace, happiness are lessons of idealism,

Fostered in the eyes of redemptorists.


No place in this world for cynicism,

When noble savants as instrumentalists,

Play in concert the cords of literalism,

With advent of supreme society of jurists.
