A story of good boys and bad boys

Translation by Peyvand Khorsandi
July 26, 2003
The Iranian
Persian original

Once upon a time,
There were two good boys,
And two bad boys.

The good boys always listened to their father
And entered the republican party.

The bad boys always listened to their father
And entered the Ba'ath party.

The bad boys milked their father's status,
So the good boys milked their father's status.

The bad boys were both fraudsters,
So were both the good boys.

One of the good boys helped his brother
Become the president.

One of the bad boys made way for
His brother to be future president.

One of the bad boys raped women.
One of the good boys raped nations.

One day the people of the world rose to see.
One of the good boys had killed both bad boys.

And at the gates of the city they paraded
Their corpses as a warning for all to see.
