    Of course you are correct, the first line made it too easy. Now have a go at the remaining riddle.

    1. I am finished when the Shah is dead
    this is a reference to CHECKMATE finishing the game.

    2. Or 'gone-off' like some old bread.
    this is a reference to STALEMATE finishing the game.

    3. Or when its too much pain
    You have to write your name again.
    this is a reference to RESIGNING (re-signing)
