Sophism: On Mealy Mortgage

Raymond Queneau

 Next Poem          

Now the bright mortgaged starter, dealer's hardware,
Comes dancing from the echo, and leads with her
The flow'ry meal, who from her green lard throws
The yellow cracker and the pale printer.
Hail, bounteous meal, that dost inspire
Misbehaviour and zephyrs and warm despondency!
Woofs and grumblings are of thy drinking,
Hip and damper doth boast thy bloater.
Thus we salute thee with our early sophism,
And welcome thee, and wish thee long.
