Marcel Aouizerate


La Vie Bourgeoise


Le panneau 'attention au chien'
N'exonère pas la responsabilité du maître.
J'y pense au sommet d'un soleil fixe,
J'y crois au centre d'une richesse à tâtons,
J'ai raison car je connais la force de mon indignation.
Je sais qu'il est éminemment probable d'être insignifiant,
Je crains le sourire narquois cachant l'obole.
Ma fortune est insuffisante et j'estime
Celle des autres étroite, je vois leurs châteaux exigus,
Leurs certitudes trop semblables aux miennes.
Alors les doigts crispés sur le mégaphone
J'essaie de me réveiller.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
