The Oneday Leader

Posted on Updated on

On the day of the first anniversary
They kinda doubt it now: say that
Perhaps it was a stab and not a shot
That Lasantha Wickramatunge got.

On the day of the first anniversary
Sri Lanka crawls on. The same.

The slow, slouching, unmoving-moving hand of
Uneven justice’s unshaven breath.
Lasantha is a man, through a woman’s hand
That was laid at death.
