An Ode to RW – Discede RW Discede
Posted on October 17th, 2017

By Gandara John (With Apologies to Sir Walter Scott)

Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,

Who never to himself hath said,

This is my own, my native land!

Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,

As home his footsteps he hath turn’d

From wandering on a foreign strand!

Alas, there breathes such a man in Lanka fair.

He struts at home and creeps abroad with cabbages and kings.

Sadly he sells, as his wont, just like his cronies queer, unable to differentiate between country and self.

He shames his school and his land, as he sells his Matha to Caucasian trash.

Go, mark him well;

For him no Minstrel raptures swell;

High though his titles, proud his name,

Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;—

Despite those titles, power, and pelf,

The wretch, concentred all in self,

Living, shall forfeit fair renown,

And, doubly dying, shall go down

To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,

Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.

    Ranil is supposed to be so crooked that he cannot do anything straight. See article from Lankaweb on Ranil’s crimes against Sri Lanka for 40 years.

    This man is a complete useless fool, I new this since 1977.
    What has happened to our country is evident from him being considered as an intelectual /economic expert by a lot of FOOLS.
    MR was happy to keep this FOOL as opposition leader.
    Until he was toppelled by this FOOL, most disabled political leader in the world.
    This proves something.
