Schrödinger's Squirrel

There’s a pome in that blog post,

Chère maman, chère maman,

There’s a pome in that blog post,

Chère maman, there’s a pome!

 

Well, so what, cher Henri,

Cher Henri, cher Henri,

Well, so what cher Henri,

Well so bloody what?

 

I don’t bloody well like it,

Chère maman, chère maman,

I don’t bloody like it,

Not one little bit!

 

Well, say so, Cher Henri,

Cher Henri, cher Henri,

Well, say so, in the comments,

Say: “Quite honestly, that’s shit!”

 

But how can I say so,

Chère maman, chère maman,

But how can I say so,

Chère maman, say so?

 

Say his pome’s got no similes,

Cher Henri, cher Henri,

Or rhythm or metre,

Tell it like it is!

 

But, I know nothing of all that,

Chère maman, chère maman,

Nor of bimoraic dipthongs,

Chère maman…or of tone!

 

Well, discuss his bloody assonance,

Or ono-mato-poeia,

Alliteration, or euphony,

Or metonomy, Henri!

 

Oh look, chère maman,

Is that a squirrel, or a cat?

I wonder, is it Schrödinger's?

I’ll comment on that!
