Does anyone know...

Does anyone know about the poem "I confess that I invented Internet and started Green Movement"?  Can someone provide a link or copy-paste it here?

Don't worry, This comment was to replace my attempt in humor

by Anahid Hojjati on

Kaveh jan, I don't know if you saw my initial version of comment.  It was humorous and in that I had written:

To friends, Enemies and Frenemies:  I have had the same issue as Simin Behbahani.  There is a poem circulating in Internet titled: "I confess that I invented Internet and started Green Movement".  This poem has wrongly been attributed to me.  I have enough "janjali" poems and IRI is already probably upset with me. Please refrain from attributing other poems to me.

So this was my initial comment and it was an attempt in humor.  Then I decided to change it and that is why I wrote a general comment about wrongness of attributing other people's poems to Simin Behbahani.

My apologies first & foremost to Simin Behbahani, and Hadi Khorsandi for wrong attribution, and also to

I have done further research, and the poem is by Hadi Khorsandi (another Great poet)


and I have updated the info.

People should refrain from attributing poems to poets wrongly, especially to such a great poet like Simin Behbahani.
