Ayatollah twitters

I wrote this at the time of the demos in Iran in the summer.

It is the democratic right of every Iranian.

To be attacked in a demonstration.

It is the democratic right of every Iranian.
To be carried away after being shot.

Every Iranian has the right to scream
under torture and interrogation.

Every Iranian has the right to be shot
— not shot of the Islamic Republic.

Shot in the face, in the arms, in the legs.

Every demonstrator has the right to a stretcher.

Every stretcher has the right to a body.

Everybody has the right to vote.
