'Shamrock Green'


I admire the sort of person who takes a stand and dares,
Dares to state an opinion about her world's affairs.
She looks an ordinary girl, not an exhibitionist,
But one so moved by the way things are that she dares to shake a fist!
Her placard's the green of the Irish, and the green of Iranians, too;
It stands for personal freedom, whatever the powerful do.
 She dared to face a camera to get the result she craved.
But what has happened to her since? I hope she has been saved.
Something a little less serious here:

Let us hope Gerald is right. There and China, too.

I hope democracy comes to Iran and that the Ayatollahs are swept from power. This is what happens when the political system is based on religion.

It takes great courage to take a stand, I admire one who does.
