Excerpt

j'ai fait quelque dette,
Pour me payer des poux!

Son habit, mis en perce,
M'a fait de beaux haillons
Que le soleil traverse;
Mes trous sont des rayons

Dans mon chapeau, la lune
Brille à travers les trous,
Bête et vierge comme une
Pièce de cent sous!

--Gentilhomme!... à trois queues:
Mon nom mal ramassé
Se perd à bien des lieues
Au diable du passé!

Mon blason,--pas bégueule,
Est, comme moi, faquin:
--<i>Nous bandons à la gueule,
Fond troué d'arlequin</i>.--

Je pose aux devantures
Où je lis:--DÉFENDU
DE POSER DES ORDURES--
Roide comme un pendu!

Et me plante sans gêne
Dans le plat du hasard,
Comme un couteau sans gaine
Dans un plat d'épinard.

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
