A memorial to Neda Agha Soltan

Supreme leaders of Iran,
murderers of your own people,
The peoples of Earth are watching you
and will remember your deeds of perversity,
will remember your words of hypocrisy.
I am watching you;
as I kneel on my floor,
calling to the sky
the names of the archangels,
imploring them
to cast infection upon your tents
and affliction upon your temples.
The blood of your citizens
stains your robes,
their cries of oppression
negate your fraudulence.
I call to the angels
to rain rocks upon your houses
and stones upon your gardens.
You will hunger for their bounty
and thirst for their streams.
Nowhere will you find relief;
and your children, bound by blight,
will perish as you wail.
Ravens will feast upon their bodies,
and you will not know their faces
on the barren day of their burial.
Your mothers and your fathers,
your brothers and your sisters,
all will fail and fall
upon your fruitless fields.

The starkness of your poem reflects the barrenness of the souls of those who wreak such havoc upon our world. Great job, John.

Such a passionate plea,but I fear it falls on deaf ears....

Be always safe,
