“This is not a Democracy!” by Sanbud Tehrani


“This is not a Democracy!”

More equals loss…
Fight like this great and disgusting world is
laughing at us.
We let this happen, we march and
stop.
The phoney made a stock out of our nation.
Lost the lot and won the “Should Have” country.

 


Sanbud Tehrani is a Persian American millennial poet based in Southern California who dabbles in surrealist automatist techniques. Sanbud is very much the kind of person who finds describing his identity and life in an author’s blurb perplexing and uncomfortable. He’s certainly the only Sanbud in the world, if that’s of any interest.
