Mario Perera, Kadawata

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

The office you were called to hold

Is not for those who favours seek

Its meant for people strong and bold

No place there for the weak and meek

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

The post which holds out bounteous hope

To the suffering and the needy

As livelong they through tunnels grope

With nothing to feel cheery

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

We looked upon your name with glee

There was ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”BankƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ and there was ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”MoonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢

It augured our tryst with destiny

Your name did herald such a boon

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

And when you put on AnnanƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s shoes

We hoped for sunrise from the East

But soon you learnt the donts and the does

You learned to scratch the western beast

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

Our forces fought their battles hard

Conquered the hateful insidious foe

We thought youƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ll be our thankful bard

And let your verse unhindered flow

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

Nothing of all that was to be

You a man from an Asian land

Were only working for a fee

The fiddler of the European band

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

For thirty years our blood was shed

Drenching LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s blessed land

We fete the living and mourn the dead

With joy not writ on sifting sand

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

Stop the war dance you did shout

But is that not what warriors do?

The scum of terrorism we did rout

You only echoed the white manƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s boo

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

So now we know you Ban Ky-Moon

We know the meaning of your name

Our people call you Ban ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”KIMUNGƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢

A boring yawn a lasting shame

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚
