She Thought - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki
Could not help, overheard
They spoke in airport
I asked them: “Can I join? ”
I was born in Iran
Raised and joined many sides
Did a lot and was part
She knew Iran well
Curious I sought, why…
Romanian, her husband had a job.
(In later times of the Shah.)
She was like old German in Lima
He spoke of Hitler:
Felt honoured: “as a child, I shook hand with leader…”
In airport this lady
The learned, as she thought
Talked of Shah, Ceaușescu and Saddam
The three perfections; good leaders…
She saw the good points,
And no doubt she was right.
But what about full picture and final?
Time was short as shared life
My plan to listen…not discuss.
