Sri Lankan Warnings

It’s dangerous!

Are you sure?

They are violent!

Why not elsewhere?

Be careful

What are you thinking?

———————————-

 What are you thinking?

Making assumptions,

Not learning for yourself.

Trusting media’s constant lies!

Their one-sided

Uninformed trash.

Have you been there?

Have you been greeted on every corner

with a toothless grin?

Have you tasted the spicy delights?

Dipped a  chappati , a roti or even a paan into

the endless pots of swimming flavours?

How dare you paint a picture of a culture

from the glimpse of your television

or a snipbit of the newspaper.

———————————-

Do you know what is dangerous?

Education by newsflash.

Don’t you ever warn others

of a place you have never been.

Open your heart

Open your mind

There is a whole world to explore

Stop judging others

and look at yourself!
