In these enlightened medieval days
Iran enjoys the Quran of Islam.
The joy of the prophet Mohammad.
The inhuman beating to death of women.
 the male interpretation of the Quran

Declaring women are inferior.
Is this their idea of Al-Qadr?
Someone who has been taught
to blow themselves to bits in Allah's name

Woman, hide your shame.
You are making this peaceful male
desire you. Although why are they so lustful
of another man's wife.
Did they not learn how to
respect women from the prophet.

Only blind obedience to an archaic text
that is wrongly interpreted in 
Islamic fundamentalist minds.
the Quran states.Blind obeisance to the prophet.
Expect respect and obedience from women.

Who are these men?
Do they believe in love or lust?
Women, hide your shape.
There’s a male cover your shame.
