Following last month's sham elections, many older generation Iranians are reciting this famous poem, which lampoons the Majlis during the rise of Reza Shah in the early 1920s. Also read another Eshghi poem about the Majlis here. From Kolliyaat-e Mosavvar-e Eshghi (Mirzadeh Eshghi's collected poems, publisher/date unknown). Thanks to F.G.G.
