Un Succès Titanesque!

The last time that I wrote in or spoke French was about ten years ago. This is the first time I’ve ever written a poem in French; so I hope that this blog post will not be, like Brexit, a Titanic débâcle. Any corrections or advice will be welcome.

La dernière fois que j'ai écrit ou que j’ai parlé le français, était il y a une dizaine d’années. Et c’est la toute première fois que j’ai écrit un poème en français; donc j'espère que cet article de blog ne sera pas, comme le Brexit est, une débâcle Titanesque. Toute correction ou conseil sera le bienvenu.


* les Biftecks: un soubriquet qui fait référence aux Britanniques.

*Les Biftecks meaning The Beefsteak (Lovers) is a nickname which refers to the British.

*Nigel Farage promised he would emigrate if Brexit was not a success.


Mon Dieu! À quoi ça sert, le Brexit?

Une catastrophe, quand tout est dit et fait,

Il vaut mieux foutre le camp, qu’on s’enfuit!

Les promesses d’UKIP sont toutes brisées.


Il se plaint, le bébé Mogg: “nana c’est pas ma faute!”,

La grande gueule Farage est au bout du souffle,

En répétant sans cesse ses mensonges tout haut,

Des vrais conneries qu’il a bien camouflé.


Nous *les Biftecks, on cherche la revanche,

Il n’y a rien de tout à célébrer,

Il faut faire *émigrer le Farage à La Manche,

Bon débarras à lui, en ce joli mois de Mai!


My god! What use is Brexit?

A disaster, when all’s said and done,

We’d be better getting out, let’s flee!

UKIP’s promises are all broken.


Baby Mogg’s complaining, “nana, it’s not my fault”,

Gobshite Farage is out of breath,

Relentlessly repeating his lies out loud,

Real idiocies he’s managed to camouflage.


We *British are seeking revenge,

There’s nothing whatsoever to celebrate,

We need to make *Farage emigrate into the Channel,

Good riddance to him in this merry month of May!

Wonderful! My French is not good enough (certainly grammatically) to say whether it's good or not. I leave that up to others. But the attempts itself alone is historical! Good job!

Well done, Uilleam. Good to see this. I recently heard that the boy Nigel was complaining about his low status on GB News. He must miss the European Parliament and all his (fiddled) expenses!
