Neda ( Beautiful Girl)

A tribute to Neda the woman shot in Iran

Gunfire echoed

No one was sure where it came from 

All we saw was you crumbleto the ground

You sunk through the earth’s crust

Right into the river of woe

 

Beautiful Girl leaves a beautiful corpse

Beautiful Girl leaves us wanting more

But they almost always do

Oh Neda you are a heart breaker

 

Neda, the ocean you are sinking in is really a fish tank

We got out our hammers but the glass just won’t crack

All we can do is sink to our knees

And watch it all unfold

 

Beautiful Girl leaves a beautiful corpse

Beautiful Girl leaves us wanting more

But they almost always do

Oh Neda you are a heart breaker

 

We removed the plane of glass

The water of hades gushed out carrying you with it

They let us have your body

Who knows where your soul resides?

Perhaps your god just couldn’t wait to meet you

 

Beautiful Girl leaves a beautiful corpse

Beautiful Girl leaves us wanting more

But they almost always do

Oh Neda you are a heartbreaker

 

 If only bullets turned into pearls

Or seeds

Instead of that crimson bloom , cold steal would produce fruit

Instead of war we would have picnics

Your scarf would be blowing in the wind

As you chased a kite

And children would sing loudly and no one would dare tell them to keep it down.

 

Beautiful Girl leaves a beautiful corpse

Beautiful Girl leaves us wanting more

But they almost always do

Oh Neda you are a heart breaker

Heart  acher....

The End
