The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.

Another Forough Farokhzad poem. Read by Parvaneh Farid. I came across Farokhzad by accident only recently. Her life was cut short in a car accident in 1967. She was just 32. I can only imagine what she would have produced had she lived.
