Shattered Dreams

[b]Shattered Dreams[/b]

By G.Amirthalingam

Sri Lanka, here I come on Air Lanka.
Heart filled with dreams of a dream holiday in the
Paradise Island.

Went through the Immigration and Customs.
Officials were nice and courteous but their eyes were
Looking out for passengers.

Who they have to help pass the barrier without paying the fee.
Friends, friend’s friend, relative and so on.
And they did it so openly, it was astounding.
I realized, ok, this is Sri Lanka, part of the Paradise service,
Only if you know the right person.
