Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

On Doit Se Présenter

Pour l'orale - un jeu
on doit se présenter:

Je suis Margaret Alice
une citoyenne du pays
de la merveille
je suis traductrice
qui doit interpréter
pour la reine rouge
et le lapin

J'habite quelque part
ou le Petit Prince se cache
et j'ai un rêve du Ministère
des Arts et de la Culture
au Pretoria dans l'Afrique
du Sud - et je ne sais pas

Parfois, pas très souvent, quelquefois,
je fais du ménage pendant le weekend,
je reste a la maison - toujours - mais
je viens au supermarché le samedi

Chaque weekend j'ai le devoir d'assassiner quelqu'un
parce que je suis un espion comme James Bond -
je me cache a la maison et quand la téléphone
sonne, je suis prêt d'aller assassiner

Chaque weekend je mange, je nage, je viens
à la promenade; je lis, j'écris, je fais le ménage,
je passe l'aspirateur, je visite ma mère, je regarde
la télé, je dorme, je me repose

Et chaque jour de la semaine
je viens au bureau

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
