Happy Birthday to me

Happy Birthday to me
by Souri

A poem from Attila Jozef. Should read "fifty two" instead of "thirty two"


  Today I have turned thirty-two,
   my present is this verse I'll do:

   A gift with which I'll now surprise,
   in this cafe apostrophise
   my self

   Thirty-two years have disappeared,
   a living wage is what I need
   my land!
   my land ...

   I could have been an educator--
   not a fountain-pen wearer-outer

   But I didn't because at school
   I got busted by a fool

   His warning hit me swift and raw
   (my "I'm an orphan" verse he saw);
   the land
   with hand

   uplifted he is sworn to save.
   My spirit shall now implicate

I knew that was a joke, I took it as a joke too :)

Thank you.



by Delavar1 on

That was just a joke.

Happy birthday.


Thank you, thank you, thank you

by Souri on

I don't know how to thank you guys! So many good friends, all my favourite people are gathered in the same blog to greet Rea and myself? So nice of you. I love you guys. I'm truly humbled .
A special thank to Princess: I really appreciated, this was very unexpected.

Alobrz gerami, Majid, Nazy jon, Azarin aziz va doust dashtani (my hero :)), Mehrban, Cost of Progress, Darius, Roozbeh aziz, Monaye nazanain, Farah khanom and all: A big thank to you my dears. Your thoughtful messages touches my heart.

JJ jon: Sheitoon? Ki man? Ki in? ......man teflak saadeh masoom? man sheitounam ya to? ;-) Thanks for thinking of me.

MPD and Mash Ghasem: You belated ones!! I was expecting you here, sooner than that. What's wrong? Namehraban shodid :) Thank you.

Ahang aziz: How nice to see you here. You humbled me, Madame.

Simorgh: bazam shoukhi? Thank you.

Also a big thank you those friends who posted warm messages for me at facebook and by email.

Wow, I am so excited to see so much love and good wills on my Birth Day. It's like a child's dream coming true !

From the bottom of my heart I say: THANK YOU DEAR FRIENDS.



What was that? A BD wish?

by Souri on

Should I consider that as a greeting from you, Delavar1?  I believe you are wrong. Some of the anti-Zionist people around here, are among my virtual friends. I am in very good term with some of those you call "regime supporter" whom in fact are not truly the regime supporter (or appologist) but have political ideas which differ from mine. But those persons ususally comment only  in  serious blogs. This one is not a seriuos blog, so I do understand why I don't see them here and I have no problem with that.



Souri you must be a zionist

by Delavar1 on

Since I don't see any messages here from either theparanoid Sargord Pirouz or Mehdi ; mola Nasredeen;Niloufar Parsi and other supporters and apologists and condoners of the theocratic Islamist regime of terror in Iran, Please allow me to guess what they would have commented re you and your birthday.

Since your avatar doesn't show you in Hijab or veil, thenyou must be a zionist and possibly a spy working for the mosad or CIA. Or you maybe a communist for KGB.

Anahid Hojjati

Souri jan, I wanted to congratulate you

by Anahid Hojjati on

On your actual Birthday. I hope you are having fun. I also hope this year will be a fantastic year for you. Full of poetry, love, music and all other great things in life.

You must be blushing! Please put your picture back on your avatar for this occasion.

Souri jaan, I hope you have a very Happy Birthday tomorrow! Do something really special for yourself, alright?  (Your skin does not show one day past 32 xox) I enjoyed reading this poem as well. 

Dear Rea, I have not met you in person but from your writing I know you treated yourself to an interesting Birthday celebration. Loved your haikus by the way :o)
