First Born To Evil in Iran

First Born To Evil In Iran

Bands of Basiji
vigilantes on motorcycles
like Janjaweed on camels
kill at their convenience
like Chinese at Tiananmen
when the Media grows bored

These Revolution Classes know best —
the Fatherland
the Motherland — but neither
secular nor religious fanatic
is a Big Brother
anything but evil.
Demons always have charisma.
—Douglas Gilbert
