They are from Persia

They are from Persia
But they are not cats
Or pistachios or carpets

They come from
A land of mystery
A place not so well-defined

This is mainly because
They want to hide their origins
To obscure the facts

Alas, they fear the reaction of others
They fear their contempt

-Rotterdam, Netherlands
