Democracy Starts in Bed - Visitor's Poem

by Shamila Daluwatte
(Sri Lanka )

I want to find democracy in Bed
Not in the World –first in my Bed
If Charity begins at home
Shouldn't Democracy start in bed?

We have been partners for so long
Let’s discuss
Our conflicting views
In our bed
You are a Capitalist
I am a Socialist
You believe in Bush
I hate your trust in Bush
Let’s talk politics
Let’s talk what happens in Iraq
Without us fighting each other

Bed is not only a place to sleep
Bed is not only for making love
Bed is not only to release the tiredness
Shouldn't bed be a place for Democracy?

Life is not a Bed of Roses
Marriage is not complete silence
My mind is full of views and opinions
Let’s talk politics
Let’s forget sex for a moment
Tell me
Do you believe in Democracy in Bed?

Shamila Daluwatte (published in “Option” Sri Lanka and Brandeis Gender Development Forum)
