Bullets and student power!

Role of the teacher
Students of what so ever
To maintain over role of scholar
Is the education and it’s manpower

Torturing and abusing of their culture
To rule with whatever
Complaining father depict her desire
To control over, school mores rather

Humble teacher and school community shiver in despair
To whom we empower, so why education protect and maintain our culture
Life is more than unless bullets of their favor
School discipline may not poor but their discipline

Very power, Very power, Very power

Poet's Notes about The Poem

' No political party or politician has the right to mete out punishment to any member of the teaching profession ' Education Minister Bandula Gunawardena said.The minister was addressing the ‘Arts Competition 2012’ certificate awarding ceremony at Isurupaya yesterday. “No political party can claim a justifiable right to mete out punishment to teachers, and on the other hand students should not be brought out of schools and pushed onto the streets to participate in ‘protests.’

“Such acts are never accepted by the Education Ministry, ” the minister said. Minister Gunawardena said the Education Ministry has the right to inquire into complaints made by teachers when such incidents are reported.

In this respect, the Education Ministry will never consider the position or status of the miscreant when investigating complaints by teachers against such misconduct.

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
