Rappelle-toi Barbara
Il pleuvait sans cesse sur Brest ce jour-là
Et tu marchais souriante
Epanouie ravie ruisselante
Sous la pluie
Rappelle-toi Barbara...

Quelle connerie la guerre
Qu'es-tu devenue maintenant
Sous cette pluie de fer
De feu d'acier de sang
Et celui qui te serrait dans ses bras
Amoureusement
Est-il mort disparu ou bien encore vivant...

Wonderful cynical anti-establishment, and even funny poems ( )
  Georges_T._Dodds | Mar 30, 2013 |
Cada poesía que hace parte del libro nos lleva a un universo totalmente distinto. Es un libro dinámico, divertido y diferente.
