“WILD-CATS” by Des Kelly
Very strange indeed, how these subjects suddenly pop up, out of nowhere, it seems, because this writer began following an Aussie-rules Football team from the town of Geelong, Melbourne, Australia, named “CATS”. Why did I begin to follow this team ?, simply because Geelong rhymed with Ceylon, the Country I loved, but had to leave reluctantly, like so many thousands of “Burgher Buggers”, when the “Sinhala-only” policy was introduced by a latter-day P.M., with the initials S.W.R.D. For him, KARMA followed. F.Y.I. Karma is a word originating from, believe it, or not, a Sinhala/Sanscrit word “KARUME’ , (pronounced Karumay). That said, your’s truly then recorded anither song in Australia called The Rise And Fall Of Flingle Bunt, (don’t know who HE was, but BUNT is another strange name), and guess what ??, I recorded this Instrumental with a group named “The Wildcats”. NOW, PLEASE WATCH THIS DOCO about these fascinating animals from Sri Lanka.
