Iran, Your Days Are Numbered, By Brian37

Iran, Your Days Are Numbered, By Brian37

 

Look to the Pyramids

Look to the future

Neda is still there

And humanity remembers

 

You will not win

In your absolutes

Your tyranny

Is obsolete

 

Before it is to late

Give it up

Scorched earth policies

Will doom us all

 

Allah Akbar

Is what you claim

But of bloodshed

Is your harvest

 

How petty

This hero you claim

To put dissent

Before humanity

 

His biggest worry

According to you

Is to kiss his ass

Or suffer his wrath

 

Yet of 7 billion

All do need

Food and shelter

And love of friends

 

Your days are numberd

Of dictation

Death to tyrants

Of any kind

 

Free free humanity

Neda will win

And of your pettyness

Our species will prevail

Yea, I'm pretty interested

Yea, I'm pretty interested to see how this plays out in Iran...it can't be good for the government.

 

On the other hand, they had protests as massive as Egypt and they failed already.  Might be tough again, especially when they know the military is willing to use force.  I think that was important in Egypt, the fact that the military would not violently disperse the crowds.

 

Everything makes more sense now that I've stopped believing.

Ultimately this isn't about

Ultimately this isn't about one country. This is about humanity and it's outdated tribalism.

Even China will have it's own problems with dissent when it's growing middle class starts to question it's "honor" bullshit.

There is no perfect class, or perfect religion, or perfect politics. There are only humans looking to survive.
