Limericks Crochetés: Once A French Goncourt Telecast Live - Poem by T (no first name) Wignesan

Once* a French Goncourt* telecast live:
“You don’t write from knowledge of (knowing) Life.
You write from reading books! ”
Prize won for swagger looks?
Or longest novel on unlived strife?

Who takes the Cup for creating lives?
Should Shakespeare not read Plutarch’s lives?
Nor Cervantes adventure?
Greek tragedians Homer?
Watch! Which kurti* Goncourt henceforth survives!

• Once: Elisabeth Quin’s “28 Minutes” on ARTE channel,
Feb.28,2014
• Goncourt: Premier French literary award(ee)
• kurti: shirt (kurti) hanging out of long pants (salwar) ,
Indian style
