The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The French

The French


James Bredin

The French have better riots and weather than us,
With snow up to our knees, we’re more inclined to discuss,
Sorbonne students and others carry signs over there,
Tear gas and burning cars on a wing and a prayer.

They used to use a guillotine to emphasize their cause,
Held up severed heads while the crowd gave applause,
But these days, they’ve changed their ways and burn cars instead,
Some get arrested though others may end up dead.

It sounds very exciting but they all speak French,
Looking around for a politician to lynch,
But not being bilingual there’s no chance to get involved,
But what a way for political problems to be solved.

These days they’re upset because they might loose their jobs,
Crowds go out to demonstrate and then become mobs,
Sounds very exciting, at least from a distance,
Are they having fun and do they need assistance?
