A man from Iran


There once was
a man from
Iran,
who possessed
a magnificent
tan...
Then he moved to
Mahattan,
Sleeping on
sheets of satin;
when asked why?
he said...
'Cause I can! '

On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
