Seyyed Bagher Mirshojaee (18/ 12/1979 / Iran)
The dog-eat-dog plot
A lunatic eagle in a suicidal operation twiddled with the tail of an old lion and set it on fire.
The authorities of the jungle gathered to counsel to do something about it;
'We should not wipe stained with blood spots by shedding more blood
So let's unlock the door of democracy.'
Send our eagles in the sky
And teach the presupposed attackers a lesson.'
'Peace making flights!
ِ Don't get close to them
Something in their faultless looks may be frightening and contagious
Attack from high afar.'
'Open fire on them
Aim at the flowery spots of the mother's dress
Fire, fire, fire, fire, .....
'The baby was not on her mother's lap, was she?
She was asleep, wasn't she?
Now all of the vultures fall down! ''
