the promise of high heaven


The fishing of votes

The politicians begin

On their rounds

Opening operation centres

The leaders of the parties

They will promise high heaven

Nothing is impossible to them

They want the votes nothing else

The voters must be wise

They shouldn't fall for the sweet tongues

It is the empty promises painting good on canvass

In reality the politicians want it for themselves

The voters mustn't vote for a racist government

It will not help the nation to grow

It will bring her back to the narrow

Don't be like Sri Lanka crying in sorrow

The fishing of votes

It will gear up after nomination day

Unless the High Court rules it otherwise

Because the turtle man has no mandate to dissolve Parliament
