Poetry > Modern Persian Poetry > THE WALLS OF A TOWN BY MANOUCHEHR SAADAT NOURY
If you want to know the heart of a town
You better read,
What in its walls have been written down?
If the walls are blank
And deliver no message for today or tomorrow
People there are frightened and in a deep sorrow
If there is
Only a very unique slogan
The town is ruled by an atrocious demon
Take the delight of the presence in the town
And write down on a wall,
By an angel, the demon will be overthrown.
