Alexandre Nodopaka

Freshman - 993 Points (1940 / Russia)

Le 14 Juillet 2015 - Poem by Alexandre Nodopaka

He had a vision of the future brimming with stars
when having drunk too many beers he positioned
a mortar tube firework on his forehead and lit the
fuse to charm his damsel.

The bitch taunted him in his minimalist machismo.
Of course the lawyers of that town had something
to do with that state of affairs in that state. A few
years ago they repealed a sixty-old law against

fireworks. They reasoned the industry would create
fresh jobs and new revenues by some other means.
Of course they didn't think of funeral homes.
Besides, this was the 4th of July and the French

were just across the border. On that note he blew
his head off. Blame it on those damn French who
used their heads towards better ends by inventing
the guillotine.
