Zita's Comments on Prof. Kottegoda Oration (in verse)

To call you Mahendra is but to address a friend who is familiar
In the guise of someone less familiar
 You do not need any introduction
And now you’ve given the 2011 Oration
Celebrating a teacher from the past
Whose work and memory will ever last
Whose work, of which you gave a smattering
And your own topical contribution
‘Ageing population’ a subject gathering
Current importance and attention
A worthy subject no doubt
It deserves a cheer and a shout
Well done Speedy! We need more
People like you and ‘Kotte’ of yore!

  2. My apologies Zita for calling you Zeta
    "Tongue of the slip", at least it wasn't Rita
    Poetic prowess of medgrads sixty two
    We need more Zita,isn't that true?
