Gay Paris - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Too much Pernod, way too much booze,
dancing in Gay Paris, Adidas shoes.
Filling our glowing cheeks
with le vin rouge
running and laughing in.....
What a deluge!
Dancing cancan Monsieur
shirts elevé,
powder for two, le deux,
doucement, bébé!

    You revive the original meaning of the word 'gay', which is simply good fun :)) That's the mood of this piece. Bravo! (with the stress falling on the second syllable, French-style :) (Report) Reply
