Ayatollah Khomeini meaning in Farsi
The reflection of God, but in reality
This could be disputed wholeheartedly
Because misrepresentations diligently
Exert and assert their religious orthodoxy
Nevertheless this does not assure accuracy
According to religion, opinion, and divinity
The Ayatollah was asinine to very many
As for countless Iranians he was most holy
But as for his claim to fame, it’s controversy
A skillful political tool indeed for any clergy
To arrest the attention of media spiritually
Yet demonizing America so arrogantly
Taking U.S. hostages at the embassy
Keeping them for 444 days mercilessly
Although sending a message successfully
Awaking the world to a nation’s religiosity
While breeding intense hatred and animosity
Galvanizing a nation with anti-American oratory
Ousting the leading shah without hesitancy
Bringing about an ideological shift powerfully
Carving out for Iran a position internationally
Stopping capitalistic imperialists seeking oil only
At the expense of the Iranian people and economy
For all the wrong and hatred Khomeini created
We must also acknowledge sincerely and honestly
The pride he restored to his homeland and nation
Unfortunately it came through hostility and oppression
Rigid rules, uneasy tradition, and brutal extermination
Of dissidents, and for women the veil and imprisonment
Enslavement and removal of civil rights for the people
So Khomeini could have the facade of societal approval
A charade of monstrous proportions and distortions
An evil oligarchy and demonic theocracy for Khomeini
Mesmermize the masses masterfully against the mighty
“The great Satan” which has made the world drunk
By reason of its music, movies, TV, and media
Yet by simultaneously creating a terrorist state
A revolution of hate and death is Khomeini’s fate.
