Human Rights Day Is Stoning In Iran

Ironic that today is Universal Human Rights Day
News out of Iran is that another women by stoning it will slay
Death is death no matter what the method or the means
But burying a victim up to shoulders and then hurling rocks makes you want to scream
Iran leads the world per capita in executions by a state
The number increasing not abating
With the case of the Times reporter as a shining example of the mockery of its trials
Its jurisprudence system to human rights definitely in the camp of hostile
Civilized nations the infliction of death by great pain no longer condone
Little doubt of the pain when a poor victim iis being stoned
Civilized nations do not execute those under the age of 18
Iran represents a theocracy whose lust for violence almost impossible to wean
If there is a silver lining on this barbaric Iranian judgment
It is the charge was murder not a refusal to convert to Islam this woman was supposed to consent
