Ahmad Shamlou Poems: Such A Weird Time It Is

“Islamists are psychos. They still send terrible noise and parasite, increase Filtering and Censorship, get on people’s nerves, and stupidly try to obey their Arbab (ie Satan/ Great Satan) and to make Iran’s people even angrier. Islamists are really psychos, anti-Culture and anti-Good. As the media reports, the 14th commemoration ceremony for the passing of Iranian poet Ahmad Shamloo was attacked by Islamists. Islamists are psychos. Islamists even attack literature, poets and poems. It’s the true meaning of Rouhani’s policy and his English democracy. All Islamists are sick pigs. Now Qalibaf openly tries to become Bin Laden, Seyed Zia or Mullah Omar! Qalibaf and his friends, Basiji/ Islamist faggots, are like Rouhani and try to hide their corruptions/ embezzlements by acting like Taliban or Seyed Zia. But do they stupidly dream of repeating Seyed Zia’s English Coup, aka the 1921 Coup? It’s not clear. But it’s clear that Iran’s people hate all Mullahs, and English Mullahs, from Seyed Zia to Seyed Ali, were and are enemies of Iran. Now even the very stupid Islamists/ Basijis talk about the End of Regime (Fatehe Regime), because now + 97% of Iranians hate all Mullahs and know that Islamists are nothing but the sons of Satan or the slaves of England”, some wise Iranians say. In these days, many things are stupid and ridiculous. In these days, as some wise Iranians say: “Mullahs help the West’s Lie Factory, and the West helps the Mullah Lie Factory. Tragedy at its peak becomes Comedy, and now Iranians just laugh and spit at the UK and its puppets, ie Mullahs, Islamists and exiled whores. Now the English Censorship, the West’s Censorship and the Mullah Censorship make many laugh, and remind many of (Shamlou and) ‘Such A Weird Time’. Now the West censors all facts/ news. Now Islamists and other animals openly attack Iranian Culture and Literature. Islamists and their Arbab show that they are sworn enemies of Iranian Culture and Iranian values, and it means, Islamists and their Arbab are sworn enemies of Culture, Civilization and Humanity. Islamists hate Shamlou, because Shamlou was not illiterate, stupid, uncultured, Khayemal (ass-licker), slave, or bad guy. Shamlu hated Dictatorship and brutal dictators, from Shah to Mullahs. Ahmad Shamlou (1925- 2000) was a Nobel prize nominee for literature in 1984. The themes in his poetry range from political issues mostly freedom to human condition and love. Ahmad Shamloo had his own problems/ weak points, but Iranians care about him because Shamlou was not Khayemal (ass-licker), while most of his friends/ colleagues were Khayemal. Ahmad Shamlou was not a slave of money and power, and that’s why Iranians and good guys care about him. But Islamists and Basijis are slaves of Satan and agents of the Devil, and that’s why they defend savage Arabs and their Zionist IMF, but attack Shamlou and Iran’s people. Islamists are sick pigs, and their Arab/ Jewish ideology is Satanism. Islamists and Zionists worship Satan, and that’s why they tell many big lies, steal people’s money and people’s votes, hurt innocent people, and kill innocent children. Islamists and Zionists are slaves of Jewish God/ Satan”. Shamlou, Shamloo or Shamlu is Iran’s most celebrated contemporary poet. Shamlu, an iconic figure in Iranian literature and modern poetry, passed away on July 25, 2000 at the age of 75. One of his famous poems is known as “Such a strange time” or “Such a weird time”. Lets take a look at part of this poem:

Such a weird time it is, my dear

They smell your mouth

To find out if you have told someone:

I love you

They smell your heart

Such a weird time it is, my dear

They knock on your door at the dark night,

to kill the light, to break your Lamp

You must hide the Light in dark closets

Such a strange time it is, my dear

They cut off the smiles from lips,

and the songs from throats,

You must hide your Emotions in dark closets

Such a strange time it is, my dear

Drunk with victory,

Satan celebrates a feast at mourning table

You must hide God in dark closets

Such a weird time it is, my dear …

In these days, as some wise Iranians say: “Mullahs and the West act like retards and psychos. The West’s Lie Factory helps the Mullah Lie Factory, and shows that the West is really the Land of Systematic Censorship. We live in such a weird time. Terrible Censorship and Terrible big lies have become part of the daily life. Such a weird time it is (Ruzegar-e Qaribist); good guys are silent, but whores, faggots, ass-lickers, retards and Big Brother’s agents pretend that they are intellectuals, dissidents, critics or the people’s voice. Such a weird time it is. It’s When Lies tell the Truth. But the West and its puppets even censor ‘When Lies tell the Truth’. Such a weird time it is; A group of the stupid bastards, ie the stupid Rights, tear their asses and kill themselves to defend savage Jews. On the other hand, another group of the stupid bastards, ie the stupid Lefts, tear their asses and kill themselves to defend savage Arabs. They don’t care about Truth, Humanity and Iranian values. They shed crocodile tears for Arabs/ Jews, but they just play dirty political games. They don’t care about average people and people’s pain. All stupid bastards are enemies of Iran and Iranian values. In 2009, 2012, 2013, and 2014, they closed their dirty eyes to the anti-Iran Sadism, the Jewish incitement to genocide, and the people’s pain and suffering in Iran; they even defended Mullahs and the anti-Iran evil acts and the Jewish incitement to genocide. Now the Stupid lefts -from big pigs like Chomsky to little shits like Ganji- shed crocodile tears for Arabs. But in these years, they didn’t defend Iran or Iran’s people, and said nothing about the anti-Iran Jews/ Arabs. They could see the Anti-Iran Sadism, the Anti-Iran evil acts, the love stories of ‘the IMF, Islamists, Arabs and Zionists’. They knew how the West, Arabs and Zionists united against Iran, and how Western bullies and Zionists threatened Iran with wars, nukes and genocide. But they closed their dirty mouths. But now these pigs -from big pigs like Noam Chomsky to little shits like Akbar Ganji and exiled whores- tear their asses and kill themselves to defend the Anti-Iran savage Arabs (Koon khode-shoon ro baray Arab-hay Zede-Iran Jer Midan) […] Iran’s people are great people. Iranians care about all innocent children, including Arab children and Jewish children. But Iranians have not forgotten how Savage Arabs and Savage Jews united against Iran in 2012 and 2013. Iranians have not forgotten how Hamas and Palestine defended Saddam, and helped Saddam during the Iraq-Iran war. Iranians know why the media says: ‘Hamas and Palestinians didn’t care about Iran or Iran’s interests, and strongly defended Syrian terrorists, Syrian Islamists, ISIS and other (savage Islamists) in Syria and Iraq’. Iranians know that Arabs, like Jews, are so ungrateful. Iranians have not forgotten how Hamas and all savage Arabs were happy in 2009, and even aided Mullahs in killing Iranian children in 2009. Iranian people know many things, and that’s why Iranians hate all savage pigs in both fucking Is-rael and fuc-king Gaza. Iran’s people only care about innocent children, and about good guys (good Arabs or good Jews) who are not savage, uncultured, ungrateful and anti-Iranian”. They also add: “Islamists and Zionists are two sides of the same coin. Islamists and Khatamists are not Iranians. They are Arabs or Jews. One day they defend bad Arabs, and one day they defend bad Jews. They are stupid psychos. Big Brother’s agents -from big pigs like Chomsky to little shits like Khatamists and exiled whores- don’t care about Iranian values, aka Human values. They have low IQs, and as Sadeq Hedayat said: ‘they can see a small straw in other people’s eyes, but they cannot see a very big hockey stick in their own asses ! (Kah ra beh Cheshm Digaran Mibinand, Ama Dasteh Bil ra beh Koon khod Nemibinand !) The stupid Lefts stupidly care about small problems (a small straw), while they close their fucking eyes to big problems and main problems. They suffer from big paradoxes, and the love story of ‘Islamists and Zionist IMF’ is just one of their many paradoxes. Sadeq Hedayat, the great Iranian intellectual, knew these stupid bastards and said good things about them. If you want to feel the joy of reading Hedayat’s comments and the power of Hedayat’s satire, you should know the Persian language. Translation ruins many things […] Hedayat knew their AnAnaat. He knew why they cannot see ‘Dasteh Bil ra beh…’ ! Hedayat and Shamlu knew AnAnaat, and now all Iranians can see and feel AnAnaat. Now Iranians say: ‘Such a weird time it is; You must hide God in the closet; you must hide the Light in dark closets […] Now Shamlu’s poems, which are new poems, have turned into one of the classics of literature. Now Shamlu’s comments like ‘the grave digger’s wages Exceed the price of human life and human freedom’, have turned into proverbs”. So, Lets take a look at a small part of Shamlu’s poems:

I have never feared death

Even though

Its hands were more fragile

Than banality

I dread, however, to die

In a land where

The grave digger’s wages

Exceed the price of human freedom

….

Shamlou talked about Hope at the Darkest times and the Darkest Nights. He said: In the end one night, Moon will be rising .. One night moon will come …

A Moon-Lit Night

On a moon-lit night

Moon is in my dream

It takes me with it

Alley to alley,

Valley to valley

On a moon-lit night

Moon is in my dream

It takes me with it

Out of the prison

Like a little moth

Into the dark night

It takes me where the

Martyrs of the town

With lanterns of blood

In the squares and streets

Cry until the dawn:

In the end one night

Moon will be rising

Over that mountain

Over the valley

And into the square,

Passing happily

One night moon will come

One night moon will come

As some wise Iranians say: “In the world whole, it is very rare to find real intellectuals. But Hedayat and Shamloo are among those rare people that you can call them Real Intellectuals. You can see Shamlou as a weaker version of Hedayat. [We have already written about Sadeq Hedayat (1903- 1951); check Archive] Hedayat knew and hated English Mullahs, including Seyed Zia and Martikeh Kashi (Mullah Kashani). If you want to know English Colonialism, Mullahs and Islamists better, you should know what Iranian Intellectuals like Hedayat said about them. Seyed Zia was a Mullah, an English Mullah. Seyed Zia was a notorious Free-m-ason. Seyed Zia said AnAnaat means traditions, and all people should care about AnAnaat. But Hedayat and his friends laughed/ spat at Seyed Zia and English Mullahs, and used AnAnaat in a sarcastic and satirical way (An = shit; so Hedayat said AnAnaat means shitty things, shitty/ evil acts etc). Hedayat referred to Seyed Zia, English Mullahs and other shitty things as AnAnaat. In the Pearl Cannon, Hedayat said the English love your AnAnaat, and they respect your religious AnAnaat, because they want to keep your country weak and backward. It’s the English Policy stupid. Hedayat knew that the UK just uses AnAnaat and religious fanatics to keep Iran weak. Hedayat knew that what religious fanatics and slaves of Ideology do is AnAnaat (shitty things; evil acts etc). He knew why the UK loves AnAnaat. He knew English Mullahs like Seyed Zia. Seyed Zia acted like today’s Mullahs and Taliban. For instance, he forbad drinking alcohol and men-women relations, while he himself lived like Satanists and had close relations with England and Jewish Zionists. Average people, intellectuals like Hedayat, and even politicians like Mossadeq hated Seyed Zia. But who were friends of Seyed Zia? Pahlavi, Islamists, Zionists and England. Now all historians confirm that Seyed Zia was a puppet of England (Nokar-e Englis). But Islamists still love or defend Seyed Zia’s AnAnaat”. They also add: “Seyed Zia published ‘Shargh Newspaper’ and AnAnaat Pamphlet, and now Seyed Zia’s followers and their media -from the BBC to ‘Shargh Newspaper’ – still love AnAnaat, and still defend Rouhani and the Mullah AnAnaat. But now these stupid bastards are the 3%, and the 97% of Iranians hate them”. Iranian people know bad guys, but many non-Iranians are still ignorant. As some wise Iranians say: “English AnAnaat, Jewish AnAnaat, religious AnAnaat, Ideological AnAnaat, political AnAnaat and economical AnAnaat have polluted the whole world. The West loves AnAnaat so much. Now people like Snow-den talk about the Western AnAnaat. But what’s the consequence of AnAnaat. As Hedayat said: ‘Anqadr AnAnaat Kardand ke Sahraye Karbala shod’ ! (they made too much AnAnaat, and finally it brought great disaster/ downfall etc). The West, Islamists and all religious fanatics are stupid psychos. They even don’t know that their stupid AnAnaat just accelerate the speed of their own downfall and their own End”. Unfortunately, many don’t know Iranian thinkers, Iranian poets, and other great men of Persia. Many even don’t know that Iranian poets are among the World’s greatest poets. But as some wise Iranians say: “Even Iran’s modern poets, including Shamlu, are great poets. Shamlu has many good poems. But many (including us) prefer his sociopolitical poems. You should read Shamlu’s poems in Persian. But you should not forget that Shamlou was actually sending a message of hope to all humans: Listen Fairies, the long night is ending; Not much remains of the night; Now the slaves are ready to pick up torches; and beat the soul of the night with them; and finish off the Devil’s darkness … Listen fairies …”

(the following poem is part of Shamlou’s famous poem Paria or Fairies)

Fairies

Once upon a time,

Three pretty Fairies sat at sunset

“Boo-hoo,” cried the Fairies

their tears were like rain from spring clouds

Their hair was as long as rope

and as dark as night

Before them, upon the horizon

Was a city of enslaved men

Behind them, black and cold

sat the old fabled Castle

They listened; and from the city they heard

the sounds of chains clinking

While from behind them in the castle

came the nightly moans

….

….

Dear Fairies, why are you crying?

(We want to defeat all Devils)

Why don’t you come to our City?

Our city wants to celebrate tonight

For the Devil’s house has been overthrown

The Devil is mad, the people are happy

Listen Fairies, the long night is ending

and the doors of the Evil castle are fastened

There is no place for Devils to run now

For them, the forests will be barren

For them, the jungles will be desert

The chains will be open

Slave-holders and Devils will be ashamed

the slaves are being freed

They become a flood,

a flood of slaves

a flood of anger, Whoosh!

The slaves are becoming free

Once upon a time,

Three pretty fairies sat at sunset

“Boo-hoo,” cried the Fairies

and their tears were like rain from spring clouds

Before them, upon the horizon

Was a city of enslaved boys

Behind them, black and cold

sat the Devil’s Castle

They listened; and from the city they heard

the sounds of chains clinking

Listen fairies …

Not much remains of the night

Now the slaves are ready to pick up torches

and beat the soul of the night with them

and finish off the Devil’s darkness

Listen fairies …
