Cyrus the Great, Founder of the Persian Empire and Author of the First Human Right Document on Earth, the Cyrus Cylinder
Cyrus Way is the Persian Way
Persian, live Persian, love Persian and die as a proud Persian
Pure Persian Pride

Cyrus Cylinder


L. Persian Immortal Guard (Achaemenid Dynasty)
R. Master - Dr. Kourosh Aryamanesh (Modern Reviver of the Persian Culture)

Both were guardians of the Persian Culture …

This poem has been inspired by and based upon the true events of my life and the Persian History.

*

How Had The Persians Died?!

His eyes were anxious and he was wide-eyed,
When I spoke of history, he got bright-eyed,
I shouted of glories and he sharp-eyed,
I sighed of defeats and he misty-eyed!

The class was over and he was still dissatisfied,
He quenched the average and saw the broadside,
He searched for knowledge, he approached the benchside,
He asked for more, a historical joyride!

He spoke gently, asked for an insight,
Teach me more, he demanded alongside,
Tell me of my Persian Heritage and my ironside,
Teach me master, be my waveguide!

He was my overqualified student, citywide,
He brought along a couple of friends, starry-eyed,
Together, enthusiastic, they asked me, bleary-eyed,
Oh Master, how had the Persians died?!

They sighed, where had the Persians died?
They screamed, when had the Persians died?
They moaned, why had the Persians died?
They cried, how had the Persians died?

They sighed, where had the Persians died?
Rostam Farrokhzad was his name, I replied, they freeze-dried!
Euphrates River, 635 AD, Persians won with pride,
Rostam roamed the battleground on the hillside.

Qadesiyeh, west bank of Tigris River, 636 AD, the homicide,
Rostam and Immortals fought to the final drop of blood, intensified,
It was a great day to live but it was shortsight!
And that's how The Rostam died!

Fall of Ctesiphon, 638 AD, the nation divide,
Victory came at Jalola, but it couldn't change the tide,
Piruzan and Hormozd tried, but they stopped to glide,
And that's how the Ctesiphon died!

Nahavand in Ecbatana, 641 AD, the world collide,
Susa, 642 AD, catastroph and then the downside,
Persepolis, 650 AD, the fall of Zoroastrianism like a snowslide,
651 AD, and that's how the Yazdgird died!

They screamed, when had the Persians died?
651 AD, Fall of our civilization, it was genocide,
Choices were Quran, Sword, fly Iran or suicide,
Time was on their side, nation was forced Arabized!

They moaned, why had the Persians died?
Tragedies, excuses, mistakes, low moral and barbarians too vicious, nationwide,
Invasion, occupation, pillage, murder, rape, slavery magnified,
One nation under Allah, Islam's goldenside!

Blood and Tears, Polygamy and Pedophile, bona fied,
Better results than this defeat, would be Cyanide!
Bodies hung from trees, burning cities, corps on the seaside,
Islam's present for Iran, was much cut-and-dried!

Like a cancer, it covered the land of the petrified,
Servitude of Allah, Slave to Arabs, a great fungicide!
Group raped, forced marriage and concubined, were women's choices, statewide,
Fall of a civilization, destruction of a culture, slavery of a race, the foe had cowhide!

They cried, how had the Persians died?
Disciples shouted, how had the Persians died?
Disciples puzzled, immaculated, dazed and confused, doomed to this exile, confined,
Disciples demanded, how had the Persians died?

Thou shall not mourn the death of Ariana, I whispered to them dewy-eyed,
Don't take The Death as granted, don't be satisfied!
Oh don't ask me, how had the Persians died?
No, don't ask me, how had the Persians died?

Ask me, how had the Persians lived?
Ask me how had the Persians loved?
Ask me how had the Persians Grooved?
Ask me how had the Persians lived?

Ask me how the Persians live (I replied)?
Ask you how the Persians live (they inquired)?
Still lives some Persians?! How the Persians live (they inquired)?
Still lives a few, ask me how the Persians live (I replied)?

With anxious eyes, they inquired,
With tears in their eyes, they awaited,
Tell us, how the Persians live?
Tell us, how the Persians live?

With absolute silence, they awaited my reply,
Master, Tell us, how the Persians live?
Gently I broke the silence and replied,
Once upon a time, lived a man ....

Oh, Once upon a time, there was a fire burning in my soul, burning bright,
Oh Once upon a time, I had a Master,
His name was Kourosh, his fame was Aryamanesh ..........
Once upon a time ..............

From Cyrus to Cyrus …
From Cyrus (The Great) to Cyrus (Kourosh Aryamanesh) …
The Cyrus way of life …

The Persian Way of life …

....... and that's how the Persians live ...........
....... and that's how the Persians love ...........
....... and that's how the Persians die ...........

To the memory of our mentor and my master, Dr. Kourosh Aryamanesh ...........
