If I hear that sentiment once more from AL satellite TV old farts – I am going to puke. Shame on you who have nothing to say and still show up in front of cameras with your fokol and keravat, flooding the airways with the last thing Iranians need – Marsieh Khooni. Once and for all get it into your thick skull – these people do not know the meaning of shame – and the last thing our youth wants to do at this very crucial junction in our history is to act out of emotion instead of wisdom.
Same is true about poetry (sher) – all the old farts offer is poems telling us how bad IR is and how they must feel shamefull!! of what they have done……This really gets sickening when you see ex military personnel also show up in front of cameras and instead of tactics – offer poems!!! and stupid poems at that.
Here are the lyrics to a poem called “The Impossible Dream” – a famous mid 20th Century poem which many in America consider it one of the elements that made what Americans consider the “Greatest Generation”. Pay attention to the lyrics – there is no sign of mourning and marsieh – it’s all about courage and willingness to achieve goals, even against odds etc…,
To dream the impossible dream To fight the unbeatable foe To bear with unbearable sorrow To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong To love pure and chaste from afar To try when your arms are too weary To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest To follow that star No matter how hopeless No matter how far
To fight for the right Without question or pause To be willing to march into Hell For a heavenly cause
And I know if I’ll only be true To this glorious quest That my heart will lie peaceful and calm When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this That one man, scorned and covered with scars Still strove with his last ounce of courage To reach the unreachable star
