Changed - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki


I was there as a guest
-felt great to meet them
- (A Mother and daughter.)
-latter was match maker!
-I saw things different
-forgotten my mirror
-did not see my own age.

Selfish me, what a shame
-always with younger girls
-felt mother was too old!

But still I was best
-to see their problem!

Only child at sixteen
-saw father leave mother
-felt as if man of house
- "Secure, defend her! "

Remarry? Forget it!
-seeking her was fear
-so, men left to disperse!

Like my Ex, her mother
-House-Queen, well-behaved
-great was in cooking, master chef!
-Driving? Neither that, nor more else…

Gorbachev brought change
-transparent, Perestroika, Glasnost
-Narrow-mind Communists did not get
-Then-Moscow, grenade, in bursting blasted!

The locals in states
-took power, went against

Many had to escape,
-they, too, were among them!
-now, here, everyone is shattered!
