The peoples will deposed the Shah.
A lesson presidents should note.
Repression only goes so far.
If they suspect you rigged the vote.
They’ll bring you down eventually.
They have decided to protest.
Although you’re trying desperately.
You cannot quell the mass unrest
The people will not tolerate
such obvious dishonesty
and are prepared to demonstrate
their discontent but peacefully
If you persist in using force
to shore up your authority.
You leave them with no other course
but to react as violently.
So by the grace of Allah leave
before you foment civil war.
The people now do not believe
the words you utter any more.
