O Les Miserables, for short Les Mis,
Must be the greatest show there is.
It is one that should not be missed,
As it evokes all feelings that do exist
It contains much hope but can be tragic,
But it amazes just like magic.
It talks of justice and of redemption.
It is gripping and full of tension.
We witness the struggles of Jean Val Jean,
Who is given the number - 24601.
Always following him is Javert,
Searching for him here and there.
And see the great suffering of the poor,
Shown little sympathy from the law.
And as angry students do fight back,
They describe their plight in red and black.
And while we see some in a living hell,
We are shown true love as well.
This might or might not be requited,
But all the time it makes us excited.
One can watch this show again and again,
Which always makes our emotions drain.
And while repute for it shall not diminish,
Neither shall Les Miserables finish.
